A Meditation on the Glikhuta Text for Sunday, 15 January 2017

“As the sun is the joy of them who seek its daybreak, so is my joy the Lord; because He is my Sun, and His rays have lifted me up; and His light has dismissed all darkness from my face. — Odes of Solomon 14:1,2

As the author of this Ode says, with the joy we find in the daybreak, giving thanks to God for the rising of the sun, our joy is heightened even more in the One who brings forth the light of the day.

It is the Light of God that removes all falsehoods, and exposes evil works of those who do not serve the Father of Greatness.


Praise be unto thee, Father of Greatness, my Lord and my God, for thou hast given me joy that is indescribable in human terms.

God, my joy is complete in thee, for thou hast brought forth innumerable rays of hope through thy life-giving Sun.

When I awaken, I give unto thee thanks and praise for removing the darkness from my life and from the lives of thy faithful servants.

Praise be unto thee, Father of Greatness, my Lord and my God, for ever and ever.
