We venerate Thy most pure icon, gracious Lord
And ask forgiveness for our transgressions, O Christ our God.
Of Thy good will Thou was pleased to ascend the cross in the flesh,
And deliver from slavery to the enemy those whom Thou had fashioned.
Therefore with thankfulness we cry aloud to Thee:
Thou have filled all things with joy, O our Saviour,
For Thou came to save the world.
