Prayer From the Festal Manaion

"By the royal command of God,
the divinely inspired apostles are caught up
from over all the world into the clouds on high.

Reaching thy immaculate body,
the source of Life, they salute it with mighty honour.

The highest powers of heaven
stood by with their own Master.

Seized with dread
they accompany thy inviolate body that had held God,
and they went on high before thee, crying, unseen,
to the hierarchies above:
'Lo, the Queen of all, the Maid of God, is nigh.'

Open wide the gates and receive above the world
the Mother of the everlasting Light.

For through her the salvation of all mankind has come.
We have not the strength to look upon her,
and are unable to render honours worthy of her,
for her excellence is past all understanding.

Therefore, O most pure Theotokos,
who livest forever with Thy Son, the King Who brings life,
pray without ceasing that thy newborn people
be guarded on every side and saved from all adverse assault:
for we are under thy protection,
and we bless thee in beauty and light unto all ages."

>From the Vespers of the Dormition (tr. by Mother Mary and Bp. Kallistos Ware)
