Sixth Sunday of the Nativity Fast
Sunday of the Genealogy of Christ
O come, Desire of nations, bind,
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of peace.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel!
Ancestors Kontakion, Tone 1 — Rejoice, O Bethlehem, prepare yourself, O Ephratha! The lamb is on her way to give birth to the chief Shepherd she carries in her womb. The God-bearing Forefathers will rejoice, beholding Him, and with the shepherds, they will glorify the Virgin who nutures Him.
