Kontakion, Tone IV —
O Christ our God, Who wast voluntarily lifted up on the Cross, grant Thy mercies to Thy new people named after Thee. Gladden with Thy power Orthodox Christians and give them victory over their enemies. May they have as an ally that invincible trophy, Thy weapon of peace.
Another Kontakion, Tone VII —
No longer does the flaming sword guard the gate of Eden, for a glorious extinction has come upon it, the wood of the Cross. The sting has been drawn from death and the victory from hell. And Thou, my Saviour, didst come and shout to those in hell: Enter Paradise again.
Troparion of the Sunday, Tone III —
Let the heavens rejoice, / let the earth be glad! / For the Lord has shown might with His arm,/ He has trampled down death by death. / He has become the first-born of the dead. / He has delivered us from the depths of hell, / and has granted the world great mercy!
Hymn to the Theotokos, Tone III —
We praise you as the mediatrix of our salvation, / O Virgin Theotokos. / For your Son, our God, Who took flesh from you, / accepted the passion of the cross, / delivering us from corruption as the Lover of man.
Kontakion of the Sunday, Tone III —
On this day Thou didst rise from the tomb, O Merciful One, / leading us from the gates of death. / On this day Adam exults as Eve rejoices; / with the prophets and patriarchs they unceasingly praise / the divine majesty of Thy power!
St. Benedict —
No Troparion is given in the Menaion.
Kontakion, Tone VI —
Thou wast enriched by the grace of God,/ and by thy deeds didst proclaim thy name./ In prayer and fasting thou wast shown to be full of the gifts of the Spirit of God,/ O Benedict, favorite of Christ God./ And thou hast been a heal er for the infirm,// a repulser of the enemy and the ready helper of our souls.
