Master, Wash the Leprosy of Our Sins in the Jordan!

Reveal Thy love to us, O Thou that didst cure the flesh of
Naamon in the waters of the Jordan, restoring it to the purity
of the flesh of a child. By thy Baptism in the Jordan, wash our
flesh and our souls pure of our sins, O Lover of Mankind!

Feast of the Theophany of Our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ
Tropar, Tone 1
When Thou, O Lord, wast baptized in the Jordan, worship of the Trinity wast made manifest; for the voice of the Father bore witness to Thee, calling Thee His beloved Son. And the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the truth of His word. O Christ our God, Who hath appeared and enlightened the world, glory to Thee.

Kondak, Tone 4
On this day Thou hast appeared unto the whole world, and Thy light, O Sovereign Lord, is signed on us who sing Thy praise and chant with knowledge: Thou hast now come, Thou hast appeared, O Thou Light unappproachable.
