We venerate Thy most pure image, O Good One,
and ask forgiveness of
our transgressions, O Christ God.
Of Thine own will Thou wast pleased to
ascend the Cross in the flesh
to deliver Thy creatures from bondage
to the enemy.
Therefore with thanksgiving we cry aloud to Thee:
Thou hast filled all with joy, O our Savior,
by coming to save the world.
