Ангели Успение Пречистыя видевше,
удивишася, како Дева восходит от земли на небо.
Побеждаются естества уставы в Тебе, Дево чистая,
девствует бо рождество,
и Живот предобручает смерть;
по рождестве Дева, и по смерти жива,
и спасаеши присно, Богородице,
наследие Твое.

The angels, having beheld the Dormition of the Most pure One,
were struck with wonder, at how the Virgin went up from earth to heaven.
In thee, O Virgin without spot, the bounds of nature are overcome
for childbirth remains virgin
and death is betrothed to life.
O Theotokos, Virgin after bearing child and alive after death,
do thou ever save thine inheritance.
