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.

You are holy, O God. You are holy, O Strong One. You are holy, O Imortal One. Have mercy on us.

Come in glory, feast so great!

let us sing and celebrate.
Shout with joy from the mountains:
"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 Romans. 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:
I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
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 Luke, 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.
The Apostle Evangelist wrote Jesus said:
He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted."
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.
