         Troparion Tone 4 “Quick to Hear”

                Let us make haste to the Theotokos amid our misfortunes,
                And fall down now before her holy icon,
                Crying out with faith from the depth of our soul,
                Harken quickly to our entreaty, O Virgin,
                In that thou art called “She Who Is Quick to Hear”
                For thee do we thy servants,
                Have as a ready helper in our needs

                 Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit
                 Now and ever and unto ages of ages, Amen

                          Kontakion Tone 8

               Tempest-tossed on the sea of life, we sink beneath the threefold waves of the

               passions and temptations,

               Wherefore, grant us a helping hand, O Lady, as thy Son did to Peter,
               And haste thou to deliver us from misfortunes, that we may cry out to thee:
               Rejoice, O Most Good One, who art Quick to Hear!
