The Transfiguration Feast Prayer

O God,

Who on the holy mount revealed to chosen witnesses Your well-beloved Son,

Wonderfully transfigured, in raiment white and glistening:

Mercifully grant that we, being delivered from the disquietude of this world,

May by faith behold the King in His beauty;

Who with you, O Father, and you, O Holy Spirit, lives and reigns,

One God, for ever and ever.
