The Nativity of our Lord, Jesus Christ! December 25, 2020
Troparion — Tone 4

Your birth, O Christ our God, dawned the light of knowledge upon the earth.

For by Your birth those who adored stars, were taught by a star, to worship You, the Sun of Justice
and to know You, Orient from on High. O Lord, glory to You.
Kontakion - Tone 3

Today, the Virgin bears Him who is transcendent, and the earth presents the cave to Him who is beyond reach.

Angels, along with shepherds glorify Him.

The Magi make their way to Him by a star.

For a new child has been born for us, the God before all ages.
