Anticipating Christ's Holy Nativity

Lift up your voice, O Zion, holy city of God,
Proclaim the divine memory of the Fathers.
With Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
Honor one whose memory is eternal:
For behold, with Judah and Levi we magnify Moses the Great,
And with him the wonder-working Aaron.
With David we celebrate the memory of Joshua and Samuel,
Calling all with divine songs and praise
To the pre-feast of Christ's Nativity,
Praying that we may receive His goodness,
For it is He who grants the world great mercy.

Orthros of the Sunday before the Nativity
