The Typical Psalms and The Beatitudes

Psalm 102
Bless the Lord, my soul. Blessed are you, Lord.
Bless the Lord, my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, my soul, and forget none of his benefits.
He forgives all your iniquities; he heals all your diseases.
He redeems your life from corruption and crowns you with mercy and compassion.
He satisfies your desire with good things; your youth will be renewed like an eagle’s.
The Lord performs deeds of mercy and judgement for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses, his wishes to the children of Israel.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful, long-suffering and full of mercy.
He will not always be wrathful, nor will he be enraged for ever.
He has not dealt with us according to our iniquities, nor rewarded us according to our sins.
For, like the height of heaven above the earth, the Lord has made his mercy prevail over those who fear him.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he taken our sins from us.
As a father takes pity on his children the Lord has taken pity on those who fear him.
For he knows of what we are made; has remembered that we are but dust.
As for man, his days are but as grass, he will blossom like a flower of the field.
For when a wind has passed over it, it will be no more and will know its place no longer.
But the mercy of the Lord is for ever and ever upon those who fear him.
And his justice is upon their children’s children,
Upon those who keep his covenant and remember his commandments to do them.
The Lord has prepared his throne in heaven and his kingdom rules over all.
Bless the Lord, all you his Angels, powerful in strength, who perform his word and listen to the voice of his words.
Bless the Lord, all you his Powers, his Ministers who do his will.
Bless the Lord, all you his works. In every place of his dominion, bless the Lord, my soul!

+ Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit …

Psalm 145
Praise the Lord, my soul. I shall praise the Lord while I live;
I shall sing to my God as long as I exist.
Do not trust in rulers and in the sons of men, in whom there is no salvation.
His breath shall go out of him, and he shall return to his earth;
On that day all his thoughts shall perish.
Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob;
His hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them,
Who keeps truth forever, who executes justice for the wronged, who provides food for the hungry.
The Lord frees those bound. The Lord restores those broken down.
The Lord gives wisdom to the blind. The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord keeps watch over strangers. He shall adopt the orphan and the widow, but he shall destroy the way of sinners.
The Lord shall reign for ever: your God, Zion, to all generations.

… both now and for ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Only begotten Son and Word of God, being immortal, you condescended for our salvation to take flesh from the holy Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary and, without change, became man. Christ, our God, you were crucified and conquered death by death. Being one of the Holy Trinity, glorified with the Father and the Holy Spirit: save us.

The Beatitudes
In your kingdom remember us, Lord, when you come in your kingdom.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after justice, for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for justice’s sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake.
Rejoice and be glad, for great is your reward in heaven.

The Epistle
At Typika the Epistle is read, not chanted

The Reading is from the Second Epistle of Saint Paul to Timothy.

You, Timothy, have paid close attention to my teaching and way of life, to my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, to the persecutions, to the afflictions which overtook me in Antioch, in Iconium, in Lystra. What persecutions I endured! And from them all the Lord delivered me. But all who want to live piously in Christ Jesus will also be persecuted; and evil people and impostors will become increasingly worse, deceiving and being deceived. As for you, continue in what you have learnt and in that with which you have been entrusted, knowing who taught you. Because even from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:10-15

The Alleluias
In Tone 1

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
The God who vindicates me, and who subdued the peoples under me.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
He who magnifies the salvation of his king and shows mercy to his anointed.
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

The Gospel
At Typika the Gospel is read, not chanted

The Reading is from the Holy Gospel according to Saint Luke.
Glory to you, Lord, glory to you.

The Lord told this parable … ‘Two men went up to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood praying to himself like this: “God, I thank you that I am not like other people: greedy, unrighteous, adulterous, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week. I give tithes of everything I possess.” But the tax collector stood at a distance and would not even lift up his eyes to heaven; he was beating his breast, saying, “God be merciful to me, a sinner.” I tell you that this man went home made righteous, but not the other. For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.’
Luke 18:10-14

Glory to you, Lord, glory to you.

The Troparia before the Creed
The heavenly choir praises you saying: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord of Sabaoth; heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Come to him and be enlightened and your faces shall not be ashamed. The heavenly choir praises you saying: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord of Sabaoth; heaven and earth are full of your glory.

+ Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit …

The choir of holy Angels and Archangels with all the Heavenly Powers praises you saying: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord of Sabaoth; heaven and earth are full of your glory.

… both now and for ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

The Creed
I believe in one God, Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten from the Father before all ages. Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one essence with the Father; through him all things were made; for our sake and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became man; he was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried; he rose again on the third day, in accordance with the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father; he is coming again in glory to judge the living and the dead; and his kingdom will have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who with Father and Son is together worshipped and glorified; who spoke through the Prophets. And in one Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church; I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins; I await the resurrection of the dead and the life of the age to come. Amen.

Forgive, remit, pardon, O God, our sins, both voluntary and involuntary, in deed and word, in knowledge and ignorance, committed by night and by day, in mind and thought. Forgive us them all, for you are good and the lover of mankind.

+ Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name; your kingdom come; your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

Through the prayers of our holy fathers, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us, and save us. Amen.

Kontakion
For the Presentation of Christ in Tone 1
You sanctified the virginal womb by your birth, O Lord, and blessed the hands of Symeon fittingly, O Christ God; and even now you came and saved us. Now, give peace to our nation in time of war, and empower our leaders, so loved by you, the only one who loves humanity.

Lord, have mercy. (40x)

At every time and at every hour, in heaven and on earth worshipped and glorified, Christ God, long-suffering, great in mercy, great in compassion, loving the just and merciful to sinners, calling all to salvation by the promise of the blessings to come; do you, Lord, yourself accept our entreaties at this hour, and direct our lives to your commandments. Sanctify our souls, purify our bodies, correct our thoughts, cleanse our ideas and deliver us from every distress, evil, and pain. Wall us about with your holy Angels, that protected and guided by their host we may reach the unity of the faith and the knowledge of your unapproachable glory; for you are blessed to the ages of ages. Amen.

+ Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; both now and for ever and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Greater in honour than the Cherubim, and beyond compare more glorious than the Seraphim, without corruption you gave birth to God the Word, truly the Mother of God we magnify you.

Blessed is the Name of the Lord from this time and for evermore. (3x)

Psalm 33
I will bless the Lord continually; his praise will always be in my mouth.
My soul will be praised in the Lord; let the meek hear it and rejoice.
Magnify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.
I sought the Lord and he heard me, and delivered me from all my afflictions.
Come to him and be enlightened, and your faces will not be ashamed.
This poor man cried and the Lord heard him, and saved him from all his afflictions.
The angel of the Lord will encamp round those who fear him, and deliver them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed the one who hopes in him!
Fear the Lord, all you his holy ones, for those who fear him never want.
The rich have become poor and gone hungry, but those who seek the Lord will not be deprived of any good.
Come, children, listen to me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Who is there who wants life, loves to see good days?
Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit.
Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are on the just, and his ears towards their supplication.
The Lord’s face is set against those who do evil, to destroy their memory from the earth.
The just cried and the Lord heard them, and delivered them from all their afflictions.
The Lord is close to those who are broken-hearted, and will save the humble in spirit.
The afflictions of the just are many, but the Lord will deliver them from them all.
The Lord guards all their bones; not one of them will be broken.
The death of sinners is evil, and those who hate the just will go astray.
The Lord will rescue the souls of his servants, and no one of those who hope in him will go astray.

[The Troparia of the day may be included here – see the appendix]

The Theotokion
It is truly fitting to bless you, Theotokos, ever-blessed and all-blameless, and Mother of our God.

+ More honourable than the cherubim, and beyond compare more glorious than the seraphim; you who without corruption gave birth to God the Word, very Mother of God, we magnify you.

The Dismissal
+ Through the prayers of our holy fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy and save us.
Amen.


Appendix
If you have not already chanted the Troparia of the day during the Third and Sixth Hours, you may wish to do so after Psalm 33 above, though they are not normally included in Typika

For the Resurrection in Tone 1
The stone had been secured with a seal by the Jews, and a guard of soldiers was watching your immaculate body. You rose on the third day, O Lord and Saviour, granting life unto the world. For this reason were the powers of heaven crying out to you, O Life-giver: Glory to your resurrection, O Christ; glory to your kingdom; glory to your dispensation, only One who loves mankind.

For the Meeting in the Temple in Tone 1
Lady full of grace, rejoice, O Virgin Theotokos, for Christ our God, the Sun of righteousness has risen from you and he illumined those in darkness. And you, righteous Elder, be glad in heart, receiving in your embraces the One who liberates our souls and bestows on us the Resurrection.

For Saint Constantine in Tone 8
Constantine, who is your Apostle among kings, O Lord, having witnessed with his own eyes the sign of your Cross in heaven, and like Paul having accepted your call without human intervention, entrusted the royal city to your hands, delivering it with safety for all time by the intercessions of the Theotokos; you who alone are the lover of us all.
