Kontakion of the Feast (Tone 2)

2 Мb. Download

Neither the tomb, nor death, could hold the Theotokos, who is constant  in prayer and our firm hope in her intercessions. For being the Mother  of Life, she was translated to life by the One who dwelt in her virginal  womb!

The stikheronfor the Dormition

DownloadО дивное чудо! Источник Жизни во гробе полагается, и лествица к небеси гроб бывает: веселися Гефсимание, Богородичен святый доме. Возопием вернии, Гавриила имуще чиноначальника: Благодатная радуйся, с Тобою Господь, подаяй мирови Тобою велию милость.

The stikheron after the Psalm 50






The angels, as they looked upon the Dormitionof the All-immaculate one,  were struck with wonder,seeing how the Virgin went up from earth to  heaven./In thee, O Virgin without  spot, / the bounds of nature are overcome: / for childbirth remains  virgin / and death is betrothed to life. / O Theotokos, Virgin after  bearing child and alive after death, // do thou ever save thine  inheritance.
