Beautiful Theophany Troparion (Church Slavonic)

Тропарь Крещения (Tone 1):

“When Thou wast baptized in the Jordan, O Lord, the worship of the Trinity was made maifest;/
for the voice of the Father bare witness to Thee, calling Thee His beloved Son./
And the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the certainty of His Word./
O Christ our God, Who hast appeared and enlightened the world,/
Glory be to Thee!”

Here is another testament to the international catholicty and unity of the Orthodox faith: Singing the same above troparion, Japanese Orthodox Christians congregate outside Tokyo’s Holy Resurrection Cathedral to receive from their bishop, Metropolitan Daniel, the blessing of sprinkling with holy water.
