“Unburnt Bush” Icon of the Mother of God - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

The miracle that Moses witnessed on Sinai in the burning bush / Foretold your virginal childbearing, O pure Mother. / We the faithful cry to you: / Rejoice, O truly living bush! / Rejoice, O holy mountain! / Rejoice, O sanctified expanse and most holy Theotokos!

Kontakion — Tone 4

You showed Moses, O Christ God, / An image of your most pure Mother / In the bush that burned yet was not consumed, / For she herself was not consumed, / When she received in her womb the fire of divinity! / She remained incorrupt after her pure childbearing! / By her prayers, O greatly merciful One, / Deliver us from the flame of passions, / And preserve your people from all harm!
