Songs for Lazarus Kalanta in English

In many parts of Orthodox Christian Greece- the highly anticipated Saturday of Lazarus is celebrated with great joy. There are festivities of songs, costumes, and fish as the Church heralds the Resurrection of Lazarus as a foretaste of Pascha and our very own Resurrection after death. For those that doubt life after death and who dismiss this reality by saying it happened to Christ because He is God but will not to us since we are man...our Lord gives this miracle...what better way to concretely display Christ's power over death and His will for all of us "Lazaruses"...join in below....  


"Lazarus has come, and so have the palms,
Sunday of the Palms, and Holy week has come!
Wake up Lazarus and do not sleep,
Your day has come and your joy now to reap!

Where o Lazarus?
Where were you hiding?
Down with the deceased,
Like one who is dying?"........

Καλή Ανάσταση!  A good Resurrection to all!
Ήρθε ο Λάζαρος, ήρθαν τα Βάγια,
ήρθε των Βαγιών η εβδομάδα.
Ξύπνα Λάζαρε και μην κοιμάσαι,
ήρθε η μέρα σου και η χαρά σου.






Πού ήσουν Λάζαρε; Πού ήσουν κρυμμένος;
Κάτω στους νεκρούς, σαν πεθαμένος.
Δε μου φέρνετε, λίγο νεράκι,
που 'ν' το στόμα μου πικρό φαρμάκι.
Δε μου φέρνετε λίγο λεμόνι,
Που 'ν' το στόμα μου, σαν περιβόλι.
