Text: Sunday after the Nativity- First Antiphon; St. Stephen, first-martyr

First Antiphon:
I will confess You with all my heart, O Lord,* I will tell all your marvels.

Through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Savior, save us.

In the counsels of rightful men and in the assemblies,* great are the works of the Lord.

Through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Savior, save us.

They are sought* in order to accomplish his will.

Through the prayers of the Mother of God, O Savior, save us.

Glory be . . . now and forever . . . : Only Begotten Son . . .
