Great and Holy Tuesday - Troparion & Kontakion

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 2

You know that this is the last hour, O wretched soul, / And fear the cutting of the fig tree. / Work diligently therefore at the talent given to you / Keep watch and pray: / Let us not remain outside the bridal chamber of Christ.
