English Language

The Akathist Hymn is a Service of the Orthodox Church that invites the faithful to rejoice in the unique and sublime role the Virgin Mary played in the salvation of mankind. The Divine Incarnation is at the heart of this glorious telling in the form of hymns and prose, for it in the Virgin's own womb that God became man. In extolling the Blessed Virgin, the Church is fulfilling the Scriptures of her own prophesy which states that "henceforth all generations shall call me blessed" (Lk. 1:48), and in the words of the inspired Elizabeth, "blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb." (Lk. 1:42).

May we stand with the Angel Gabriel, who was sent from heaven to proclaim the Good Tidings to the young Virgin and say things such as these,

Rejoice, thou through whom joy shall shine forth. Rejoice, thou through whom the curse shall be blotted out. Rejoice, for thou art the Throne of the King. Rejoice, for thou sustaineth the Sustainer of all. Rejoice, thou through whom the Creator becometh a babe. Rejoice, thou Bride unwedded!
