Resurrectional Apolytikion Grave Tone
By Your Cross, O Christ our God, You destroyed death. You opened paradise to the thief.

Apolytikion of the Church
As the deliverer of the captives and protector of the poor, as the physician of the feeble and combatant of kings, champion and great martyr George, intercede with Christ our God to save our souls.
To you, Theotokos, invincible Defender, having been delivered from peril, I, your city, dedicate the victory festival as a thank offering. In your irresistible might, keep me safe from all trials, that I may call out to you: "Hail, unwedded bride!" - Copyright Narthex Press, used by permission. All rights reserved
