Icon of the Mother of God “of the Three Hands” on Mt Athos - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

From Palestine, the godly-minded Sava / brought us your venerable icon, O holy Bride of God, / which is known as the icon “Of the Three Hands”; / and now, since the monks of Hilandar possess it as their boast, / they send up hymns of praise and thanksgiving, / crying out in exultation: / Rejoice, O full of grace!

Kontakion — Tone 8

Podoben: “O victorious Leader...” / Come, let us revere the famed icon of the Queen of All, / known as the icon “Of the Three Hands” because of the marvel which it wrought; / and with fervent faith and longing let us cry out, / “O pure maiden, preserve your monastery and your flock from all dangers, / tribulations and adversities, for we cry to you: / Rejoice, O help and defense of all!”
