In '''Slavic practice''', a Megalynarion is a hymn that is is sung at the end of the Polyeleos, which usually begins with "We magnify..." In Slavonic, this type of hymn is called a ''velichaniye''. This type of hymn is also called "The magnification" of the feast.
In '''both Byzantine and Slavic practice''', the term "megalynarion" is also used to refer to hymn that is sung at the the [[Divine Liturgy]], just after the consecration of the Holy Gifts.
The most common megalynarion is the one used at the [[Divine Liturgy]] of St. John Chrysostom], when it is not a feast of the Lord, or of the Theotokos]:
