you have raised our human nature to the throne of heaven:
help us to seek and serve you,
that we may join you at the side of the Father,
where you reign with the Spirit in glory,
now and for ever.
Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
