You are called righteous

English Midnight Praises - 2

St. Anthony Monastery, California


You are called righteous, O Saint Mary, the second tabernacle, belonging to the holies.

Wherein is placed, the rod of Aaron, and the holy flower, of incense.

You are clothed with purity, within and without, O pure tabernacle, the dwelling of the righteous.

The hosts of the high standings, and the chorus of the just, glorify you, and your blessedness.

Wherefore we, magnify you befittingly, with prophetic, hymnology.

For they spoke of you, with great honor, O holy city, of the great King.

We entreat and pray, that we may win mercy, through your intercessions, with the Lover of Mankind.
