Name of the person who Fell Asleep in the Lord

For all religious services, only the first name is used, except during the Great Entrance. During the Great Entrance, both the first name and the family name are mentioned to avoid confusion because the members of the parish may know more than one person with the same first name. The reason is that the faithful are entitled to know for whom they pray.

Gender of the person who Fell Asleep in the Lord

The text states "servant of God" and "handmaid of God". Males are a servant of God and females are a handmaid of God.

Tone

The "Evlogitaria" is sung in the Fifth Tone.

Two Liturgical Texts are presented

"Evlogitaria of the Resurrection" based on the booklet used at St. Anne Melkite Greek Catholic Church, North Hollywood, CA and at St. Joseph Melkite Greek Catholic Chruch, Akron, Ohio

Priest: Blessed is our God at all times, now and always and forever and ever.

People: Amen.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. * (Only once. to be repeated after each verse).

I. Blessed are those You have chosen and drawn near, to dwell in your courts, O Lord. We shall be filled with the good things of your House.

2. Their souls shall abide in abundance, and their generation shall inherit the earth.

3. Their memory will remain forever and ever.

* During the Paschal time we skip Alleluia and its verses. Instead, we chant the Troparion of Pascha three times, then immediately: Blessed are You, O Lord...

Evlogitaria of the Resurrection
Fifth Tone

1. Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me your statutes.

The orders of angels were amazed, as they beheld You, O Savior among the dead, destroying the power of death, and raising up Adam with You, and releasing all from Hades.

2. Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me your statutes.

The radiant angel standing within the tomb, cried out to the Myrrh-bearers: Why O women Disciples, do you mingle myrrh with your tears of pity? Look upon the tomb and rejoice, for the Savior has risen from the dead.

3. Blessed are You , O Lord, teach me your statutes.

Very early in the morning, the myrrh-bearers ran lamenting to your tomb. But the angel stood by them and said: Do not weep, the time of lamenting has passed. Announce the Resurrection to the Apostles.

4. Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me your statutes.

The myrrh-bearing women came with myrrh to your tomb, O Savior, and heard the angel say to them: Why do you think that the Living One is among the dead, for as God He has risen from the dead.

5. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit

We worship the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the Holy Trinity One in Substance, and with the Seraphim we cry out: Holy, Holy, Holy are You O Lord.

6. Now and always and forever and ever. Amen.

Since you gave birth to the Giver of life, O Virgin, you delivered Adam from sin, and you granted joy to Eve instead of sadness, for He Who took flesh from you, God and Man, restored to life him who had gone astray.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, glory be to You O God.
(Three times)

The Deacon incenses while singing:

Ma'al qideeseen areh ayuhal- Maseeh ul-Hah, nafsa 'abdeeka [amatika], haythu la waja'on, wala hoznon, wa la tanahud, bal hayatun la tafna.

Priest: Glory to You, O Christ God, our hope, Glory to You. May Christ our true God, Who is risen from the dead, have mercy on us through the prayers of his all-pure Mother, of his holy and glorious Apostles who are worthy of all praise, of our venerable and God-bearing fathers, and all the Saints; and may He establish in the mansions of just the soul of his departed servant N.
