The Magi, Kings of Persia

The Magi, Kings of Persia, knew with assurance that Thou, the heavenly King, wast born on earth. 

Led by the light of a star, they came to Bethlehem and offered their chosen gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh. 

Falling down before Thee, they worshipped Thee, for they saw Thee Who art timeless, lying as a Babe in a cave.

"As the Prophets saw, as the Apostles taught, as the Church has received, as the Teachers express in dogma, as the inhabited world understands together with them, as grace illumines, as the truth makes clear, as error has been banished, as wisdom makes bold to declare, as Christ has assured, so we think, so we speak, so we preach, honoring Christ our true God, and his Saints, in words, in writings, in thoughts, in sacrifices, in churches, in icons, worshiping and revering the One as God and Lord, and honoring them because of their common Lord as those who are close to him and serve him, and making to them relative veneration. This is the faith of the Apostles; this is the faith of the Fathers; this is the faith of the Orthodox; this faith makes fast the inhabited world."
