Great And Holy Thursday - The Twelve Gospels

The Last Supper.

Troparion - Tone 6

Of Your Mystical Supper, O Son of God, accept me today as a communicant. For I will not speak of Your mysteries to Your enemies, neither like Judas will I give You a kiss, but like the thief will I confess You: Remember me, O Lord, in Your Kingdom!

The Mystical Supper.

Troparion - Tone 4

By Your precious blood, You have redeemed us from the curse of the law. By being nailed to the cross and pierced by a spear, You have poured forth immortality for man. O our Savior, glory to You!

Kontakion - Tone 8

Come, let us all sing the praises of Him who was crucified for us, for Mary said when she beheld Him upon the tree: Though You do endure the cross, You are my Son and my God!

The Bridegroom.

Troparion - Tone 8

Behold the Bridegroom comes at midnight, and blessed is the servant whom He shall find watching, and again unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless. Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep, lest you be given up to death and lest you be shut out of the Kingdom. But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, are You, O our God! Through the Theotokos have mercy on us!
