- 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.
