"You put on the waters of the Jordan, O Savior..."
Icon of the Baptism of Christ, the Great Feast of Theophany (source)
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!
