I attend a parish which uses Greek and English in the liturgy. I am able to understand a modest amount of the Greek, and I sometimes use the service book to help, but the service book doesn't seem to include all of the hymns they sing while people are receiving Communion. I am not chrismated and so I don't yet go up to receive, but I thought the songs were lovely. I would much appreciate it if anyone could point out a website or a listing somewhere which indicates the usual Communion hymns one might hear in a Greek Orthodox Church. Thank you very much.   Smiley

Some chanters repeat the Entrance Hymns of the Day; some go back to the last 3 or 4 stichera from Orthros/Matins for that day.  Some do both.

Since the Entrance Hymns (and the stichera from Orthros/Matins) vary from week to week, there are many sources where one can find them.  http://www.analogion.com comes to mind.  Warning, most of this is in Greek.

Ask the choir director/head chanter.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
