WHEN GABRIEL GREETED YOU, O VIRGIN,
HE CRIED OUT LIKE THE RIGHTEOUS DAVID,
FOR IN YOU, SACRED ARK, WAS THE MASTER OF ALL INCARNATE.
YOU WERE MANIFEST AS MORE SPACIOUS THAN THE HEAVENS,
FOR YOU BORE YOUR CREATOR!
GLORY TO HIM WHO DWELLS IN YOU!
GLORY TO HIM WHO COMES FORTH FROM YOU!
GLORY TO HIM WHO FREES US THROUGH YOUR CHILD!

THE MARTYRS PROFESSED, AND WE HAVE BELIEVED
