The Life-Giving Spring

Mary,

Most Holy, and

Mother of my God.


My model,

My refuge, and

My love.


I seek, and

With humility, I ask

To approach your Life-Giving Spring?


With all my heart,

I pray...


Revive,

Restore, and

Renew me.


"O Lady graced by God, you reward me by letting gush forth, beyond reason, the ever-flowing waters of your grace from your perpetual Spring. I entreat you, who bore the Logos, in a manner beyond comprehension, to refresh me in your grace that I may cry out, 'Hail redemptive waters'.”


- From a kontakion (a hymn), which is chanted on Bright Friday after Pascha
