Evangelismos - Chapel of the Annunciation

 

 

 
Σήμερον τῆς σωτηρίας ἡμῶν τὸ κεφάλαιον
καὶ τοῦ ἀπ' αἰῶνος μυστηρίου ἡ φανέρωσις·
ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ, Υἱὸς τῆς Παρθένου γίνεται
καὶ Γαβριὴλ τὴν χάριν εὐαγγελίζεται.
Διὸ καὶ ἡμεῖς σὺν αὐτῷ, τῇ Θεοτόκῳ βοήσωμεν·
χαῖρε Κεχαριτωμένη, ὁ Κύριος μετὰ σοῦ.
 
 
    Today is the beginning of our salvation,
    The revelation of the eternal mystery!
    The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin
    As Gabriel announces the coming of Grace.
    Together with him let us cry to the Theotokos:
    Rejoice, O Full of Grace,
    The Lord is with You!
