Glory to Thee, Who hast shown forth the light.
Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men.
We praise Thee, we bless Thee,
we worship Thee, we glorify Thee,
we give thanks to Thee for Thy great glory.
O Lord and King, heavenly God, Father Almighty;
O Lord, the only- begotten Son Jesus Christ,
and Holy Spirit.
O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
that takest away the sin of the world;
have mercy upon us, Thou that takest away the sins of the world.
Accept our prayer, Thou that sittest on the right hand of the Father,
nd have mercy upon us.
For Thou only art Holy;
Thou only art Lord, Jesus Christ,
in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Every day will I bless Thee and will I praise Thy Name
forever and ever.
Strengthen us, O Lord, this day to be kept sinless.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, God of our fathers,
and praised and glorified is Thy Name forever. Amen.

Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we trust on Thee.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach me Thy statutes. [3 times]

O Lord, Thou hast been a refuge for us from generation to generation.
I said, Lord have mercy upon me; heal my soul,
for I have sinned against Thee.
O Lord, to Thee have I fled; teach me to do Thy will,
for Thou art my God.
For with Thee is the fountain of life;
in Thy light we shall see light.
Extend Thy mercy unto them that know Thee.

Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us. [3 times]
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
Both now and forever, and from all ages to all ages. Amen.

Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us.

After the end of Doxology the dismissal hymn of the holiday is chanted. On Sundays this is:

Today hath salvation come into the world.
Let us sing praises unto Him Who is risen from the grave,
and Who is the author of our life; for, having destroyed death by death,
He hath given unto us the victory and the great mercy.
