Blessed Resurrection

Evlogitaria ("Blessing") of Resurrection is chanted in honor of the Resurrection, commemorating the journey of the Myrrhbearers on their way to the Tomb of Christ and the announcement of the Resurrection of Jesus.

Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach me Thy statutes.
The assembly of angels was amazed, beholding Thee, a man among the dead, yet O Saviour destroying the stronghold of death, and with Thyself raising up Adam, and freeing all from Hades.

Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach me Thy statutes.
‘Why mingle ye myrrh with tears of pity, O ye women disciples?’ Thus the radiant angel within the tomb addressed the myrrh-bearing women. ‘Behold the tomb and understand, for the Saviour has risen from the tomb.’

Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach me Thy statutes.
Very early the myrrh-bearing women hastened, unto thy tomb, lamenting. But the angel stood before them and said: ‘The time for lamentation is passed! Weep not! But tell of the resurrection to the apostles.’

Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach me Thy statutes.
The myrrh-bearing women, with myrrh came to Thy tomb, O Saviour, made ready. But the angel addressed them saying, ‘Why seek ye the living among the dead? For as God He is risen from the tomb!’

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit:
Let us all worship the Father, and His Son, and the Holy Spirit; the Holy Trinity, one in essence; crying with the Seraphim: Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, O Lord.

Both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
In bringing for the Giver of Life, thou hast delivered Adam from Sin, O Virgin, and hast brought joy to Eve instead of sorrow. Man thus fallen from life, hath thereunto been restored by Him who of thee was incarnate, both God and man. 

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia! Glory to Thee, O God! (thrice)
