"Your paths, O God, your paths are great and wonderful..."

Mosaic of Christ Pantocrator (source)
Your paths, O God, your paths are great and wonderful; therefore we magnify you for the might of your dispensation, for, light from light, you visited your wretched world, and in your good pleasure, O Word, did away with the first curse on ancient Adam, and you fixed for us times and seasons for glorifying your all-pervading goodness. Lord, glory to you!
-Idiomelon of the Praises in the Fourth Tone, for the New Ecclesiastical Year
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
