Hymn to the Theotokos
It is truly right to bless you, O God-bearing One, as the ever-blessed and immaculate Mother of our God. More honorable than the cherubim and by far more glorious than the seraphim; ever a virgin, you gave birth to God the Word. O true Mother of God, we magnify you.
The Angelic Salutation
Hail Virgin Mary, Mother of God, full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are You among women, and Blessed is the Fruit of your womb. For you have borne Christ The Saviour and Deliverer of our souls. Amen
