Troparion — Tone 4

O Mistress, Empress and Lady, / Defend all who are in danger and misfortune / Or weak from many sins, / And who stand before your holy Icon / Praying with tears, humility, repentance, and invincible hope, / Free them from all evil, / Give them the grace they need. / And save us all, O Virgin Mother of God, / For You are the divine refuge of those who follow you!
