Dazzling in the robes of high Priesthood, you proclaimed with joy the Gospel of the kingdom, Basil, pouring out for the church teachings of orthodoxy; now enlightened by them we confess one Godhead in a Father almighty, an only-begotten Word of God and a divine Spirit, and we glorify it, inseparable in Three Persons; Imploring this one Godhead to save and enlighten our Souls.
