AT thy fair virginity
and the surpassing brightness of thy purity,
Gabriel was filled with wonder,
And cried out unto thee, O Theotokos:
‘What title of honor shall I bestow upon thee?
How shall I address thee? I am bewildered and struck with awe.
But as I was commanded I shall cry out to thee,
Hail, full of grace!’
Την ωραιότητα της παρθενίας Σου
