Apocalypse Saturday Rites

Apocalypse / Joyous Saturday

Psalm 151 .

I am small among my brothers/ and a boy in my father’s house/ I tended my father’s sheep/ My hands made an organ/ and my fingers tuned a psaltery/ Alleluia (3).

And who shall tell my Lord? He is The Lord/ He listens to everyone that cries up to Him/ He sent His angel/ and took me from my father’s sheep/ and anointed me with His anointing oil/ Alleluia (3).

My brothers are handsome and great/ but the Lord did not take pleasure in them/ I went out to meet the Philistine/ and he cursed me with his idols/ Alleluia (3).

But I drew his sword which he had/ and beheaded him/  And removed reproach from the children of Israel.Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. Glory be to our God .

The First Canticle (Exodus 15)

Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and spoke saying, “Let us sing to the Lord for He has triumphed gloriously.”

The horse and its rider, He has thrown into the sea. The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation.

He is my God and I will glorify Him, my father’s God and I will exalt Him.

The Lord is a man of war, the Lord is His name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He has cast into the sea.

His chosen captains also drowned in the Red Sea.

The depths have covered them; they sank to the bottom like a stone.

Your right hand, O Lord, has become glorious in power. Your right hand, O Lord, has dashed the enemy in pieces.

And in the greatness of Your excellence, You have overthrown those who rose against You. You sent forth Your wrath, it consumed them like stubble.

And with the blast of Your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the flood stood upright like a heap, and the depths congealed in the heart of the sea.

The enemy said, “I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil, my desire shall be satisfied on them, I will draw my sword, and my hand shall destroy them.”

You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them, they sank like lead in the mighty waters.

Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorified in His saints, amazing in glory, performing wonders?

You stretched out Your right hand, the earth swallowed them. You, in Your mercy, have led forth the people whom You have redeemed. You have guided them, in Your strength, to Your holy habitation.

The people will hear and be afraid; sorrow will take hold of the inhabitants of Palestine.

Then the chiefs of Edom will be dismayed, the mighty men of Moab, trembling, will take hold of them.

All the inhabitants of Canaan will melt away; fear and dread will fall on them.

By the greatness of Your arm, they will be as still as a stone, till Your people pass over, O Lord, till Your people pass over whom You have purchased.

You will bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which You have made for Your own dwelling.

Your sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established, the Lord shall reign forever and ever.

For the horses of Pharaoh went with his chariots and his horsemen into the sea.

And the Lord brought back the waters of the sea on them, but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.

Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with praises.

And Miriam answered them, saying, “Let us sing to the Lord for He has triumphed gloriously.

“The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea. Let us sing to the Lord for He has triumphed gloriously.”

Psali Adam (Lobsh) for the First Canticle 

 

 


 

With the split: the waters of the sea split: and the very deep: became a walkway.

A hidden earth: was shone upon by the sun: and the untrodden road: was walked upon.

The flowing water: stood still: by a miraculous: act of wonder.

Pharaoh and his chariots: were drowned: and the children of Israel: crossed the sea.

And in front of them: was Moses the prophet praising: until he brought them: to the wilderness of Sinai.

And they were praising God: with this new psalmody: saying, “Let us sing to the Lord: for He has triumphed gloriously.”

Through the prayers: of Moses the archprophet: O Lord grant us: the forgiveness of our sins.

Through the intercessions of: the Mother of God Saint Mary: O Lord grant us: the forgiveness of our sins.

We worship You O Christ, with Your good Father, and the Holy Spirit, for You were crucified and saved us.

Let us give thanks/ unto Christ our God/ with David the Prophet/ and the holy Psalmist.

For He has made the heavens/ and all its hosts/ and established the earth/ on the waters.

 

These two great lights/ the sun and the moon/ He has made to enlighten/ the firmament.

He brought forth the winds/ out of His treasures/ He breathed unto the trees/ and they blossomed.

 

He caused the rain to fall/ upon the face of the earth/ and it sprouted/ and gave its fruit.

He brought forth water/ out of a rock/ and gave it to His people/ in the wilderness.

 

He made man/ in His image/ and His likeness/ that he may praise Him.

Let us praise Him/ and exalt His name/ and give thanks to Him/ His mercy endures forever.
