You can purchase the book directly from St. Vladmir's Orthodox Seminary or through a secondary book market like Amazon.

HYMNS OF THE DAY
Resurrectional Apolytikion in the Pl First Tone
O Faithful, let us sing a hymn of praise and worship to the Logos, coeternal with the Father and the Spirit, who was born of the Virgin for our salvation. Of His own will He went upon the Cross in the flesh and suffered death, to raise the dead through His glorious Resurrection.
Apolytikion for the Church
You were transfigured upon the mountain, O Christ our God, showing to Your disciples Your glory, as much as they could bear. Do also in us, sinners though we be, shine Your everlasting light, at the intercession of the Theotokos, O Giver of light. Glory to You!
Seasonal Kontakion in the Second Tone
A protection of Christians unshamable, intercessor to our Holy Maker unwavering. Please reject not the prayerful cries of those who are in sin. Instead come to us for you are good, your loving help bring unto us, who are crying in faith to you. Hasten to intercede, and speed now to supplicate.
