Come, O people, let us sing the praises of the pure and most holy Virgin,
from whom the Word of the Father ineffably came forth in the flesh!
Let us cry aloud and say: "Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the womb that contained Christ!
Having delivered your soul into His holy hands,
O most pure one, entreat Him to save our souls!"

From the Aposticha verses for the Feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos, August 15
