Hallelujah! In Your light, we see light, Jesus, Full of Light. Since You are the True Light shining upon creation, shine brightly upon us with Your delightful light, and gladden us with the dawn of Your morning. ܗܰܠܶܠܘܽܝܰܐ . ܒܢܘܽܗܪܳܟ ܚܳܙܶܝܢܰܢ ܢܘܽܗܪܳܐ ܝܶܫܘܽܥ ܡܠܶܐ ܢܘܽܗܪܳܐ ܆ ܕܰܐܢ̱ܬ ܗ̱ܘܽ ܢܘܽܗܪܳܐ ܫܰܪܺܝܪܳܐ ܕܡܰܢܗܰܪ ܒܶܪ̈ܝܳܬܳܐ ܆ ܐܰܢܗܰܪ ܠܰܢ ܒܢܘܽܗܪܳܟ ܓܰܐܝܳܐ ܘܚܰܕܳܐ ܠܰܢ ܒܕܶܢܚܶܗ ܕܨܰܦܪܳܟ ܀
Hallelujah! Pure and holy One, who dwells in the lofty abode of light, keep away from us evil passions and impious thoughts, and grant us to perform just deeds with a pure heart. ܗܰܠܶܠܘܽܝܰܐ . ܚܰܣܝܳܐ ܘܩܰܕܺܝܫܳܐ ܕܥܳܡܰܪ ܒܡܶܕܝܳܪ̈ܰܝ ܢܘܽܗܪܳܐ ܆ ܟܠܺܝ ܡܶܢܰܢ ܚܰܫ̈ܶܐ ܒܺܝ̈ܫܶܐ ܘܚܘܽܫܳܒ̈ܶܐ ܣܢ̈ܰܝܳܐ ܆ ܘܗܰܒ ܠܰܢ ܕܰܒܕܰܟܝܘܽܬ ܠܶܒܳܐ ܢܶܥܒܶܕ ܥܒ̈ܳܕܶܐ ܕܟܺܐܢܘܽܬܳܐ ܀
Hallelujah! God chose the Virgin [Mary] from among all women, who was the purest and holiest of all those who are born, He dwelt in her for nine months, and prepared for Himself a body from her.ܗܰܠܶܠܘܽܝܰܐ . ܓܒܳܗ̇ ܐܰܠܳܗܳܐ ܠܰܒܬܘܽܠܬܳܐ ܡܶܢ ܟܽܠܗܶܝܢ ܢܶܫ̈ܶܐ ܆ ܕܕܰܟܝܳܐ ܗ̱ܘܳܬ ܘܩܰܕܺܝܫܳܐ ܗ̱ܘܳܬ ܡܶܢ ܟܽܠ ܝ̈ܺܠܺܝܕܶܐ ܆ ܘܝܰܪ̈ܚܶܐ ܬܶܫ̈ܥܳܐ ܕܰܝܰܪ ܒܳܗ̇ ܘܥܰܬܶܕ ܠܶܗ ܦܰܓܪܳܐ ܡܶܢܳܗ̇ ܀
Hallelujah! In a loud voice the martyrs cried out before judges: “We do not deny Christ who was crucified on a tree, and for the sake of His love we accept sufferings, tortures, and tribulations.”ܗܰܠܶܠܘܽܝܰܐ . ܒܩܳܠܳܐ ܪܳܡܳܐ ܩܥܰܘ ܣܳܗ̈ܕܶܐ ܠܰܩܕܳܡ ܕܰܝ̈ܳܢܶܐ ܆ ܕܠܳܐ ܟܳܦܪܺܝܢܰܢ ܒܰܡܫܺܝܚܳܐ ܕܥܰܠ ܩܰܝܣܳܐ ܐܶܨܛܠܶܒ ܆ ܘܰܚܠܳܦ ܚܘܽܒܶܗ ܡܩܰܒܠܺܝܢܰܢ ܚܰܫ̈ܶܐ ܘܫ̈ܶܢܕܶܐ ܘܐܘܽܠܨܳܢ̈ܶܐ ܀
Hallelujah! Son of the Living One, You who died, was raised, gave life to mortals, consoled those who are buried, and brought hope to those who are asleep, may the departed who confessed the Trinity be raised to life by You.ܗܰܠܶܠܘܽܝܰܐ . ܒܰܪ ܚܰܝܳܐ ܕܡܺܝܬ ܘܐܶܬܢܰܚܰܡ ܘܰܐܚܺܝ ܠܡܳܝ̈ܘܽܬܶܐ ܆ ܘܝܰܗ̱ܒ ܠܘܽܒܳܒܳܐ ܠܰܩܒܺܝܪ̈ܶܐ ܘܣܰܒܪܳܐ ܠܰܫܟܺܝ̈ܒܶܐ ܆ ܒܳܟ ܢܶܬܢܰܚܡܘܽܢ ܥܰܢ̈ܺܝܕܶܐ ܕܰܐܘܕܺܝܘ ܒܰܬܠܺܝܬܳܝܘܽܬܳܐ ܀
