Glorify Him!

Troparion, Tone IV —

Thy nativity, O Christ our God,
hath shone forth the light of knowledge upon the world;
for therein those who worship the stars
have been taught by a star to worship Thee,
the Sun of righteousness,
and to know Thee the Orient from on high.
O Lord, glory be to Thee!

Kontakion, Tone III idiomelon —

Today the Virgin giveth birth unto the Transcendent One,
and the earth offereth a cave to the unapproachable One.
Angels and shepherds give glory,
the magi journey with the star.
For unto us a Child is born, the preeternal God.


Lovpris Ham!

Troparion, 5. tone:

Din fødsel, Kristus, vor Gud,
har fremskinnet kundskabens lys over verden;
thi derved har de, som tilbeder stjerner,
af en stjerne lært at tilbede Dig,
retfærdigheds Sol,
og at kende Dig, Solopgang fra det høje.
Herre, ære være Dig!

Kontakion, 3. tone:

I dag føder Jomfruen den Transcendente,
og jorden byder den Utilnærmelige en grotte.
Engle og hyrder giver ære,
de vise mænd rejser med stjernen.
Thi os er et Barn født – Gud før al evighed.
