You were seen as our light and surety, we therefore shout to you:
Rejoice, O unsetting star which leads the great Sun into the world.
Rejoice, O pure one, for you opened Eden.
Rejoice, fiery pillar ushering humankind to life on high.
Most-holy Theotokos, save us.
Behold, we cry out to you, rejoice.
Become for us a harbor and haven,
for we are tossed about on the sea of adversity,
and of the many scandals of him who wars with us.
