I meant to post this yesterday, on the actual feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos. But…better late than never.
<b>Apolitiykion of the Dormition of the Theotokos, Mode 1</b>
In giving birth thou didst preserve thy virginity
In thy dormition thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos
Thou wast translated unto life since thou art the Mother of Life
And by thine intercession dost thou redeem our souls from death
