Polyelion or Polyeleos of Christmas
« on: December 07, 2010, 06:03:48 PM »
Glory to Jesus Christ!

My love of Christmas Vespers is at a roadblock. I am looking for the words of the Polyelion/Polyeleos of Christmas and I cannot find it. I tried looking for it in Arabic, but all I could find were these two videos. I tried looking for it in English, but none of them matched the words or music as the Arabic one.

Please help me. Thank you.

Proclaim the wonder, O Joseph, to David, the ancestor of God:
you saw a Virgin great with Child, you gave glory with the shepherds,
you worshipped with the Magi, you received the news from the angel.
Pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Welcome to the forum.

First of all, the Polyeleos is chanted at Orthros (Matins) not Vespers.  Second of all, the text is (should be) Psalms 134 and 135.
