Sunday of Pentecost

It is the Fiftieth Day of Easter.

Христос воскресе

Χριστος ανεστη

Christ is risen

When the vivifying, violent wind
of the All-holy Spirit
came from on high,
resounding unto the fisherman
in the form of fiery tongues,
they spake eloquently
concerning the mighty
deeds of God.
O all ye works,
praise ye the Lord
and supremely exalt Him
unto all the ages.

Ye that ascend not
that untouchable mountain,
nor fear the awesome fire,
come, let us stand
on Mount Sion,
in the city of
the living God,
and now form one choir
with the Spirit-breathing
O all y works,
praise ye the Lord,
and supremely exalt Him
unto all the ages.

Βασιλεῦ Οὐράνιε, Παράκλητε, τὸ Πνεῦμα τῆς Ἀληθείας, ὁ πανταχοῦ παρὼν καὶ τὰ πάντα πληρῶν, ὁ θησαυρὸς τῶν ἀγαθῶν καὶ ζωῆς χορηγός, ἐλθὲ καὶ σκήνωσον ἐν ἡμῖν καὶ καθάρισον ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ πάσης κηλῖδος καὶ σῶσον, ἀγαθέ, τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν.
0 Heavenly King, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, Who art everywhere and fillest all things, treasury of Blessings, and Giver of Life, come and abide in us and cleanse us from every impurity and save our souls, 0 Good One.

I cannot help posting this again; it is my favorite Easter video.
