Nativity Fast Day 3

O Chosen by the pre-eternal God,

Queen of heaven and earth higher than all creation,

who hast in days past entered praying

into the Church of the Blachernae we,

offering Thee with thanksgiving due veneration,

flee with faith and compunction under

Thy shining vestment for we lie in darkness.

And Thou who hast invincible power dost set us free

from every affliction that we may cry to Thee:

Rejoice, our Joy, protect us from every ill by Thy precious Veil.
