Sunday of the Holy Myrrhbearing Women with the Noble Joseph

Troparion — Tone 2

The Noble Joseph, / When he had taken down Your most pure Body from the tree, / Wrapped it in fine linen and anointed it with spices, / And placed it in a new tomb. / But You did rise on the third day, O Lord, / Granting the world great mercy.

Troparion — Tone 2

The angel came to the myrrhbearing women at the tomb and said: / Myrrh is meet for the dead; / But Christ has shown Himself a stranger to corruption! / So proclaim: the Lord is risen, / Granting the world great mercy!

Kontakion — Tone 2

You did command the myrrh-bearers to rejoice, O Christ! / By Your Resurrection, You did stop the lamentation of Eve, O God! / You did command Your apostles to preach: The Savior is Risen!
