Rejoice, thou who art full of grace,/ Mother of God and Virgin,/ for from thee arose the Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God,/ to give light to those in darkness./ Rejoice thou also, righteous Elder, who didst take in thine arms the Redeemer of our souls,/ Who also gives us the grace of resurrection.
In the Temple thou didst embrace as an infant God the Word Who became flesh./ O glorious Elder Symeon, who didst hold God in thine arms./ And also as a prophetess the august Anna ascribed praise to Him./ We acclaim you as divine servants of Christ.
Thy life and mission/ were pleasing to God, most pious Ia,/ for seeing thee left behind in Ireland,/ He miraculously transported thee across the sea to Cornwall on a leaf./ Wherefore O Saint, pray to God for us/ that we may never give way to despair/ but ever trust in His great mercy.
Thou Who didst sanctify the Virgin's womb by Thy birth/ and bless Symeon's hands as was fitting/ hast now come to us and saved us, O Christ our God./ But grant peace in the midst of wars to Thy community,/ and strengthen the Church which Thou hast loved,/ O only Lover of mankind.
Let Symeon the Righteous and Anna the Prophetess,/ that godly pair, be praised together;/ well-pleasing to God,/ they became witnesses of the Incarnate Lord./ When they saw him as an infant, together they worshipped Him.
By a miracle, God showed that the first should be last, and the last first, O righteous Ia,/ and therefore we look to thee as a symbol of Gospel truth,/ ever praising thy illustrious memory.
