From the Triodion

Come, O Faithful, and let us do the work of God while it is light. Let us walk honestly as in the day. Let us cast away every unjust accusation against our neighbor, not placing any stumbling block that he wall on his way. Let us lay aside the pleasures of the flesh and increase the spiritual gifts of our souls. Let us give bread to those in need, and let us draw near to Christ, crying out in repentance: O our God, have mercy on us!

From the Aposticha of Vespers of Saturday
(Friday Evening) First Week of Lent

I shall open my mouth, and it will be filled with the Spirit; and I shall sing a hymn to the Queen and Mother; and I shall celebrate with splendor and sing with joy of her wonders.

Ode One , Hiermos, Canon of the Akathist Hymn
