Troparia for the Entry into the Temple of the Most Holy Theotokos

Troparion (Tone 4)

    Today is the preview of the good will of God,
    Of the preaching of the salvation of mankind.
    The Virgin appears in the temple of God,
    In anticipation proclaiming Christ to all.
    Let us rejoice and sing to her: Rejoice,
    O Divine Fulfillment of the Creator's dispensation.

Kontakion (Tone 4)

    The most pure Temple of the Savior;
    The precious Chamber and Virgin;
    The sacred Treasure of the glory of God,
    Is presented today to the house of the Lord.
    She brings with her the grace of the Spirit,
    Therefore, the angels of God praise her:
    "Truly this woman is the abode of heaven."

Forefeast hymn

Troparion (Tone 4)

    Today Anna bequeaths joy to all instead of sorrow by bringing forth her fruit, the only ever-Virgin.
    In fulfillment of her vow,
    Today with joy she brings to the temple of the Lord
    the true temple and pure Mother of God the Word.

Kontakion (Tone 4)

    Today the universe is filled with joy
    At the glorious feast of the Mother of God, and cries out:
    "She is the heavenly tabernacle."
