Today's hymns speak of how Christ made those who ascended Mt Tabor with Him "partakers of (His) otherworldly glory." The Apostles, "overcome with fear, fell headlong upon the earth."
Troparion - Tone 7
You were Transfigured on the Mount, O Christ God, Revealing Your glory to Your disciples as far as they could bear it. Let Your everlasting Light shine upon us sinners! Through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Giver of Light, glory to You!
Kontakion - Tone 7
On the Mountain You were Transfigured, O Christ God, And Your disciples beheld Your glory as far as they could see it; So that when they would behold You crucified, They would understand that Your suffering was voluntary, And would proclaim to the world, That You are truly the Radiance of the Father!
