"You put on the waters of the Jordan, O Savior..."

You put on the waters of the Jordan, O Savior, You Who array Yourself with light as with a garment, and You inclined Your head to the Forerunner, You Who count heaven in palm of Your hand, in order to return the world from error, and to save our souls.
-Doxastikon of the Praises, Matins of Holy Theophany, by Anatolios.

Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
