Syriac: msheeho natareh l’eedtokh
or msheeho natareh l’eedtokh (Abdallah)
On a Sunday Jesus rose in great majesty and might;
having conquered sin and death, he brought sinners back to him
and clothed them with his pure robe of holiness,
out of his great love.
Hosts of heaven, dressed in white, hastened to the tomb at dawn.
They cried out with joy and called people to rejoice.
Let both earth and heaven praise and honor him,
for he has redeemed the world.
On this day we worship him, Jesus Christ, our Lord and God.
He has saved us by his cross and has sealed us with his grace.
He guides us along the way with his pure light
to eternal life.
With the hosts of seraphim, and the ranks of cherubim,
and all of the saints, we join in their hymns of praise.
May the lasting peace of Christ dwell in the world;
may he fill our hearts with love.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.
Jesus Christ our Lord, on this blessed Sunday make us worthy to praise your resurrection with pure hearts and clear consciences. With all the children of your holy Church, we glorify and thank you, your Father, and your Holy Spirit, now and forever.
Let us raise glory, honor, and praise to the good and merciful Lord, who, in his compassion, came down to us and became flesh. He chose to taste death to save us, and he descended to the realm of the dead. By his resurrection, he gave joy to his disciples and gave light to the nations with the light of his salvation. To the Good One be glory and honor, on this blessed Sunday, and all the days of our lives, and forever. Amen.
O Word of God, who can adequately praise you for the depth of your compassion, and what voice can bless you, for you are above all praise? Neither mind nor tongue can describe the wonders you accomplished on Sunday, the day of your resurrection from the dead. And so, with the Psalmist David, we cry out: "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad."
Now, O Christ our God, we ask you, with the fragrance of this incense which we offer you, to forgive our sins, give peace of mind to those in distress and comfort to those who are anxious. Bring back those who are far and watch over those who are near. Guide the shepherds, sanctify the priests, and purify the deacons. Pardon all sinners and guard the righteous. Protect orphans and help widows. Drive away conflicts and put an end to dissension.
Remember the faithful departed and grant them rest in your heavenly kingdom, that with them we may celebrate that eternal feast. We raise glory to you, to your blessed Father, and to your living Holy Spirit, forever. Amen.

let us sing and celebrate.

"Sunday is a feast so great!"
Offer praise to the Lord God,
and with angels celebrate.
Blest be God who exalted
Sunday far above all days.
Let the priests read the Gospel;
let us sing our hymns of praise.
A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians. Your blessing, Father.
Glory to the Lord of Paul and the apostles! May the mercy of God descend upon the reader and the listeners and upon this parish and her children forever. Amen.
Brothers and Sisters:
When I came to you, brothers and sisters, I did not come proclaiming the mystery of God to you in lofty words or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I came to you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. My speech and my proclamation were not with plausible words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God. Yet among the mature we do speak wisdom, though it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to perish. But we speak God’s wisdom, secret and hidden, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written, "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him"—these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.
(1 Corinthians 2:1-10)
Praise be to God always!
"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice in it and be glad."
Before the proclamation of the Gospel of our Savior, announcing life for our souls, we offer this incense and ask for your mercy, O Lord.
Peace be with you.
And with your spirit.
From the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Saint John, who proclaimed life to the world.
Let us listen to the proclalation of life and salvation for our souls.
Remain silent, O listeners, for the Holy Gospel is about to be proclaimed to you.
Listen and give glory and thanks to the Word of the living God.
"Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it. "If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you. "I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them." Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?" Jesus answered him, "Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me. "I have said these things to you while I am still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.
This is the truth! Peace be with you!
Praise and blessings to Jesus Christ, our Lord and God, for giving us his words of life.
