Nativity Troparion

Thy Nativity, O Christ our God, / hath shined upon the world the light of knowledge; /
for thereby, they that worshipped the stars / were taught by a star /
to worship Thee, the Sun of Righteousness, / and to know Thee, the Dayspring from on high. /
O Lord, glory be to Thee.

Kontakion on the Eve of the Nativity

"On this day the Virgin cometh to the cave to give birth to God the Word ineffably, Who was before all the ages. Dance for joy, O earth, on hearing the gladsome tidings; with the Angels and the shepherds now glorify Him Who is willing to be gazed on as a young Child Who before the ages is God".

Troparion, 5th tone

"Let us the faithful now come together * to praise our father, protector and teacher * the pillar of the Orthodox faith * and firm defender of piety * even the wondrous hierarch Philaret * and let us glorify our Saviour * Who has granted us his incorrupt relics * as a manifest sign of his sanctity".
