Great and Holy Monday

Behold, the Bridegroom cometh at midnight,

And blessed is he whom He shall find watching,

But unworthy is he whom He shall find heedless.

Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep,

Lest you be given up to death and shut out of the Kingdom.

But rouse yourself crying: Holy, Holy, Holy, art Thou, O our God,

Through the Intercessions of the Theotokos have mercy on us.

-- Troparion of Bridegroom Matins
