I've always viewed this prayer, the "O come let us worship...", as the Orthodox "call to prayer", perhaps comparable to the Islamic Adhān or the Jewish Barekhu.

What is this prayer called, and can anyone post a YouTube link to the prayer in the Greek I assume it was composed in?  I'm looking for an actual name associated with the prayer, such as the Trisagion or the Sanctus.

It's an atypical translation of Psalm 95:6.

Still, though.  Is there any actual name associated with the prayer?

Lol. I was going to say the same thing, but I was afraid that Alveus Lacuna would just think I was being a smart alec.

I'll bet I look like a goof.
