THOU didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
THE sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back. The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like lambs. What ailed thee, O sea, that thou fleddest? and thou Jordan, that thou wast turned back? Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills, like lambs? The earth trembled at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.
O MY Jesus, who art the illuminating light that is Light itself, and lightens men (Jn 1:9), widely didst thou shine light consubstantial with thy Father, when thou wast baptized in the running streams of the Jordan; in it all creation is filled with light, and unto thee, O Christ, doth she cry: Blessed art thou our God who appeareth, glory be to thee.
The sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back.
SO that we may be filled with divine glory through the flesh, O come ye spiritually, let us cleanse the senses and, beholding Christ baptized in the flesh and break the head of the deceiver (Ps 73:13; Is 27:1), let us as we sing praises cry out to him: Blessed art thou our God who appeareth, glory be to thee.
What ailed thee, O sea, that thou fleddest? and thou Jordan, that thou wast turned back?
In the Jordan river, O my Jesus, in thy tender pity thou gavest us, who burn with thirst for thee, living streams for drink, O thou that lovest mankind; therefore, O Christ, being given our drink from thy immortal, light-bearing* fount, we sing: Blessed art thou our God who appeareth, glory be to thee.

THEN Jesus cried out, When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
