Akathist (Standing Up) Hymn to Jesus Christ

by: George Varghese, AB, Canada

Kontakion 1

To the Champion Leader and Lord, Vanquisher of Hades, I, Your creature and servant, offer a song of praise, for you have delivered me from eternal death. But, as you have ineffable loving- kindness, deliver me from all dangers that I may cry to you.

Jesus, Son of God, Have mercy upon me

Eikos 1

Creator of Heaven and Angels and Lord of Hosts, as of old You opened
the ear and tongue of him that was deaf and dumb, so now open my
perplexed mind and tongue to praise Your most holy Name, that I may
cry to You:

Jesus, Most Wonderful, Astonishment of Angels
Jesus, Most Powerful, Deliverance of Forefathers
Jesus, Most Sweet, Exultation of Patriarchs
Jesus, Most Glorious, Dominion of Kings
Jesus, Most Desired, Fulfillment of Prophets
Jesus, Most Praised, Steadfastness of Martyrs.
Jesus, Most Gladsome, Comfort of Monastics
Jesus, Most Compassionate, Sweetness of Presbyters
Jesus, Most Merciful, Abstinence of Fasters.
Jesus, Most Tender, Joy of the Righteous
Jesus, Most Pure, Sobriety of Virgins
Jesus, Pre-eternal, Salvation of Sinners

Jesus, Son of God, Have mercy on me

Notes: Akathist means "Standing up" Prayers could be more or less like Stoumen Kalos = Stand we well , Pay attention etc. used by the Greek and Eastern Orthodox traditions. Two well known Akathist Hymns to them are one to Lord Jesus Christ and other venerating Virgin Mary the Theotokos (Mother of God).

In Orthodox Christian tradition, an important essence is turning ourselves as community to God with repentance and praise and honor to Him in worship eucharistically. While the essence remains the same, this worship developed over centuries in centers of early Church like Antioch, Alexandria etc. and in time to locally manifest in beautiful forms.
