oday, like the lucid sun, your fair icon shines for us in the firmament, O Theotokos, with rays of mercy enlightening the world. And Great Russia, with reverence embracing it like a heavenly bestowal, glorifies you, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven, and gladly dignifies Christ our Lord who was born of you. Pray to Him, O Queen and sovereign Virgin, that He keep all Christian cities and lands safe from all the enemy wiles and that He grant salvation to those who kneel faithfully to His divine and Your most holy image, O unwedded Bride.
