Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

Hail, Virgin Theotokos, full of grace! / From you shone the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God, / enlightening those who were in darkness! / Rejoice, O righteous Elder; / you received in your arms the Redeemer of our souls, / Who grants us the Resurrection.

Kontakion — Tone 1

By Your birth, You sanctified the Virgin’s womb, / and You blessed Simeon’s hands as was meet, O Christ God; / by anticipation You have saved us even now. / Grant peace to Your faithful people, and strengthen the Hierarchs You have loved, O only Lover of mankind.
