DOXASTICON FOR THE DORMITION IN THE EIGHT TONES

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; both now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Tone One:  Verily, the God-mantled Apostles were caught up on all sides, ascending the clouds by a divine sign.

Tone Five:  And they came up to thy most pure, life-originating resting-place to kiss it reverently.

Tone Two:  As for the most sublime heavenly powers, they came with their own chief.

Tone Six:  To escort, enwrapped in awe, thine all-honored, God-receiving body, they went before in a super-earthly manner, shouting invisibly to the heavenly ranks, Behold the Queen of all, the divine Maiden, has come.

Tone Three:  Lift up the gates and receive super-earthly-wise the Mother of everlasting Light.

Tone Seven:  For through her hath salvation come to the whole human race. And she is the one on whom it is impossible to gaze, and whom we never can honor sufficiently.

Tone Four:  For the honor through which she became sublime transcendeth all understanding.

Tone Eight:  Wherefore, O undefiled Theotokos, everlasting with thy life-bearing Son, intercede with Him unceasingly that He may preserve and save thy new people from every hostile assault; for we have taken thee unto us as our helper.

Tone One:  Therefore, do we magnify thee with voices of joy unto all ages.
