Bright was the Feast which has just passed but even brighter, oh , our Savior, is the one which is coming. That one had the angels as heralds and this one had as preparatory the Forerunner.
On that occasion being shed blood Bethlehem cried as one without sons and on this one the waters being blessed the bathing is known to have many sons.
Then the star announced the magicians and now the Father shows You to the world.
Glory to You, Lord, Who incarnated yourself and will come again.
