Troparion — Tone 4

Ardent intercessor, Mother of the Lord on High, / you pray to your Son, Christ our God, for all, and save those who have recourse to your powerful protection. / Defend us, O Lady, Queen and holder of sovereign power / when we, burdened with many sins, stand before you in misfortune, sorrow, and sickness, / praying to you with tender sensitivity of soul and contrite heart, / shedding tears before this, your most pure image, with steadfast hope in you who deliver us from all evils. / Grant unto us what is profitable for our souls and save all, / O Virgin Theotokos, / for you are the divine protection of your servants.
