Pentecost, Troparion, Tone VIII —
Blessed art Thou, Christ our God, Who didst make the fishermen wise by sending down upon them the Holy Spirit, and through them didst draw the world into Thy net. Lover of men, glory to Thee.
Kontakion, Tone VIII —
When the Most High came down and confused the tongues, He divided the nations, but when He distributed the tongues of fire, He called all to unity. And with one accord we glorify the All-Holy Spirit.
Come, O ye peoples, / let us worship the Godhead
in three Persons: / the Son in the Father, with the
Holy Spirit; / for the Father timelessly begat the
Son, / Who is co-eternal and Co-enthroned; / and
the Holy Spirit was in the Father, glorified with
the Son; / one Might, one essence, one Godhead, /
which we all worship, saying: / Holy God, Who
didst create all things through the Son, / with the
co-operation of the Holy Spirit. / Holy Mighty,
through Whom we have known the Father, / and
through Whom the Holy Spirit came to the world.
/ Holy Immortal, the Comforting Spirit, / Who
proceedest from the Father and restest in the Son.
// O Holy Trinity, glory be to Thee. Pentecost Vigil Prayer Before the Small Entrance
