morning prayer, on the feast of the three holy hierarchs
How great is Thy compassion
Thou immortal, sinless one
Thou hast freed mankind from corruption
Thou who art God and man at once;
Ransoming hell for his captives
And despoiling death of his pow’r
Rejoice O Pure Virgin, Theotokos,
For the joy of thy womb’s flow’r
Has come to those in faith
To enlighten all the earth
In Thy light we shall see Light
Enlighten the eyes of my heart, O Christ!
Through the prayers of our holy fathers,
O Savior, save us!
