Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos

Troparion of the Feast in Tone Four

Your Nativity, O Mother of God, heralded joy to the whole universe, for from you rose the Sun of Justice, Christ our God; taking away the curse, He imparted the blessings, and and by abolishing Death, He gave us everlasting life.

Exapostilarian from Orthros of 8 September

Be clothed with a new glory, O Adam and Eve! In company with the Holy Apostles, O Prophets, sing and rejoice together with all the just. Let there be a common joy among angels and men, for on this festive day the just Joachim and Anna have brought into the world the Mother of our God.
