O Holy and Divine Ladder Whereby to the Heavens we return.
Hear me, O Lord.
Joachim is exultant and Anna is keeping festival.
Bestow Your Grace and Blessings in the Year to come.
O Queen of Heaven.
Tree of The Cross you are thrice Blessed.
For through you has the Fashioner deigned to hold converse with us.
Zacharias the Righteous Priest of the Most High God.
Whereupon He appoints him to be the chief shepherd of His sheep.
We Glorify Your Divine Condescension.
With reverence and gladness of heart O Theotokos we all embrace thine Honourable Sash.
Go unto the house of Elizabeth with haste.
Thou do now accept also this my small Hymn.
Do therefore now bring peace into our life, O Lord, as the only Almighty One.
For you carried the Creator in your arms as a Child.
Thy Fatherly embrace open wide to me quickly.
At Christ’s command they let down on the right side the net.
The Saviour’s Prophet and Baptist and promoter of chastity.
We Glorify Your Divine Condescension and we sing Your praise O Christ.
O All-Revered Virgin, through whom my Redeemer, Christ the Lord, hath appeared.
From them that call on thee with faith and fervour of spirit, giving them their asking…
…but You Who are my Saviour assist me and save me.
Making Christ known to all.
And thine entire being to The Prayer didst thou dedicate.
As the Spirit’s vessel and the Lord’s almighty bride.
O Theotokos, we feel we are safe and sound when we rely on you.
But they that seek the Lord shall not be deprived of any good thing.
Let us commend ourselves and one another and our whole life to Christ Our God.
For Panteleimon bestoweth healing both of Soul and body.
For thou didst dedicate thyself unto Him with all thy Soul, O Irene our Righteous Mother.
