Troparia and kontakia for April 29

Great and Holy Monday

Troparion — Tone 8

Behold the Bridegroom comes at midnight, / And blessed is the servant whom He shall find watching, / And again unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless. / Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep, / Lest you be given up to death and lest you be shut out of the Kingdom. / But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, are You, O our God! / Through the Theotokos have mercy on us!

Kontakion — Tone 8

Jacob lamented the loss of Joseph, / But his noble son was seated on a chariot / And honored as a king. / For when he refused to be enslaved / By the pleasures of the Egyptian woman, / He was glorified by the Lord who beholds the hearts of men, / And bestows upon them an incorruptible crown.
