THE ICON OF THE MOTHER OF GOD OF ELLWOOD CITY


Verses for "Lord I Call"
Tone 8, Special Melody "O All Glorious Wonder"

O all glorious wonder!
Your holy icon was carried across the sea
To bring joy to people in the new world.
And you took up your abode in a new church
Built for the glorification of God
And the feast of His holy Transfiguration,
So that those who live and those who visit here
May receive peace and great mercy
And salvation of their souls. 

O all glorious wonder!
Your holy image brings strength and peace
To those living the monastic life
And to those who come to ask your aid.
Cease never to harken to us
Who implore your great love and help.
Pray for children and their parents,
For the sick and the troubled,
That Christ our God may save our souls.
