Lord have mercy.
Most Holy Theotokos, save us.
O Protection of Christians that 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.
