Akathist for the repose of Those Who have fallen asleepkontakion 1
Save, O Lord, those who have
died in grievous sufferings
, those who were murdered,
those buried alive
, those who were drowned or burned, those
who were torn by wild beasts
, those who died of hunger or cold,
from exposure in storms
, or by falling from heights, and grant them all eternal joy for the sorrow of their death. May the time of their suffering be
blessed as a day of redemption
, for which they sing:
Recompense with the compassion of Thy infinite love, O Lord, all who have died in
the full flush of their youth
, who received on earth the thorny crown of suffering, who never experienced earthly joy.
Grant recompense to
those who died from overwork
, through exploitation or sweated labor.
Receive, O Lord, into the bridal halls of Paradise boys and girls,
and grant them joy at the marriage supper of Thy Son.
Comfort and console the grief of parents over their dead children.
Give rest, O Lord,
to all who have no one to
offer prayer for them to Thee
, their Creator,
their sins may vanish
in the dazzling light of Thy forgiveness.
O Lord of unutterable Love, remember Thy servants who have fallen asleep.
