Icon of the Mother of God “The Nurturer” - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

You were nurtured in the Temple and in the Holy of Holies, / robed with faith and in wisdom and perpetual virginity. / The Archangel Gabriel brought you greetings from Heaven and cried: / “Hail, O full of grace, hail, Most Glorious Lady, / the Lord is with you.”

Kontakion — Tone 6

We have no other help, we have no other hope, but you, O Lady. / Help us, for in you we hope, / and of you we boast, for we are your servants. / Let us not be put to shame.
