Hail, O Tendril whose Bud shall not wilt!

Hail, O Soil whose Fruit shall not perish!

Hail, O Tender of mankind’s loving Tender!

Hail, O Gardener of the Gardener of Life!

Hail, O Earth who yielded abundant mercies!

Hail, O Table full-laden with appeasement!

Hail, for you have greened anew the pastures of delight!

Hail, for you have prepared a haven for the souls!

Hail, acceptable Incense of Prayer!

Hail, Expiation of the whole universe!

Hail, O you Favor of God to mortal men!

Hail, O You Trust of mortals before God!

Hail, O Bride and Maiden ever-pure!

(Litany of the Second Chant of the Byzantine Akathist Hymn to the Blessed Virgin Mary) 

Reading 3

O God, who, fulfilling the promise made to our Fathers,

chose the Blessed Virgin Mary

to become the Mother of the Savior,

grant that we may follow her example,

for her humility was pleasing to you

and her obedience profitable to us.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit

one God, forever and ever. Amen. 

(Roman Missal, Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary, II. Advent, Collect 1)
