Rejoice, O Virgin full of Grace, the Lord is with You

REVEALING TO YOU THE PRE-ETERNAL COUNSEL,
GABRIEL CAME AND STOOD BEFORE YOU, MAID,
AND IN GREETING SAID:
REJOICE, EARTH THAT HAS NOT BEEN SOWN;
REJOICE, BURNING BUSH THAT REMAINS UNCONSUMED;

REJOICE, UNSEARCHABLE DEPTH;
REJOICE, BRIDGE THAT LEADS TO HEAVEN;
REJOICE, LADDER RAISED ON HIGH THAT JACOB SAW;
REJOICE, DIVINE JAR OF MANNA;
REJOICE, DELIVERANCE FROM THE CURSE;
REJOICE, RESTORATION OF ADAM,
THE LORD IS WITH YOU!

(Vespers for the Feast of the Annunciation)
