THEOTOKOS, Searcher for the Lost

Theotokos, Searcher for the Lost,

Within the temple, O Temple of Life,

You found Him whom the universe could not contain,

Silencing the teachers by the Word of God,

Which is above the wisdom of the wise.


0 all-pure Mother of God,

Cease not seeking your children who are lost,

That we may treasure Christ in our hearts,

And find eternally our Father’s house.
