Behold the Bridegroom

Troparion of Bridegroom Matins

Behold the bridegroom comes at midnight
And blessed is the servant whom he shall find watching;
And again, unworthy is the servant whom He shall find heedless.
Beware, therefore, O my soul, do not be weighed down with sleep,
Lest thou be given over to death,
And lest thou be shut out of the Kingdom.
But rouse thyself, crying: "Holy! Holy! Holy! art Thou, O our God.
Through the Theotokos have mercy on us!"
