Doxastikon of the Dormition of the Theotokos

August 15, 2010

First Tone
Glory to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
By divine command, the God-bearing Apostles were caught up and brought from over the world by the clouds on high.
Plagal of First Tone
Reaching thine all immaculate body, the source of Life, they kissed it with exceeding honour.
Second Tone
The highest powers of the Heavens stood by with their own Master.

Plagal of Second Tone
Seized with dread, they accompanied thine inviolate body that had held God, and in a manner transcending that of this world, they went on before thee crying unseen to the hierarchies on high: Behold the Queen of all, the Maid of God, is come.
Third Tone
Life ye up the gates, and in a manner transcending that of this world, receive the Mother of the Everlasting Light.
