Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary who is the Protection of Christians
O Protection of Christians who cannot be put to shame,
Mediation unto the Creator most constant,
O despise not the suppliant voices of those who have sinned,
But be thou quick, O good one, to come unto our aid,
Who in faith cry unto thee.
Hasten to intercession, and speed thou to make supplication,
Thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos,
Them that honor thee.
O Most Holy Theotokos, Intercede to Christ God for us that we all may be saved.
