The following is taken from the Akathist (Salutations) service Tone 3
Awed by the beauty of thy virginity
and the exceedingly radiance of thy purity,
Gabriel stood amazed and cried to thee,
What worthy hymn of praise can I offer unto thee?
And what shall I name thee?
I marvel and stand in awe.
Wherefore as commanded I cry to thee:
Rejoice, O thou who art full of grace.
Most Holy Theotokos
