The Feast of Saint Yared

O Almighty God, who willest to be glorified in thy Saints and didst raise up thy servant St. Yared to shine as a light in the world: Shine, we pray thee, in our hearts, that we also in our generation may shew forth thy praises, who hast called us out of darkness into thy marvellous light; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Saint Yared originated the form of the sacred music of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

Saint Yared, pray for us, for Ethiopia, and for all musicians and composers of church music.
