Tone 1 vV  

 Translation from The Festal Menaion 

In giving birth O Mother of God thou hast retained thy virginity,

And in falling asleep thou hast not forsaken the world.

Thou who art the Mother of Life,

Hast passed over into life:

And by thy prayers thou dost,

Deliver our souls from death.
