Yea, the mountain which was thick with smoke of old hath become now honorable and holy; for
that Thy feet did rest on it, O Lord, for the mystery hidden before the ages, Thy Transfiguration
before Peter, James and John hath made manifest. And they, not being able to bear the radiance
of Thy face and the splendor of Thy raiment, did fall down on their faces kneeling, and being
overcome with astonishment, wondered at the sight of Moses and Elijah conferring with Thee on
things that were to befall Thee, while a voice from the Father bore witness, saying, This is My
beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased, hear Him Who giveth to the world the Great Mercy.
