Heart

O Mary, heart of the whole world, you are greater than the many-eyed Cherubim and the six-winged Seraphim, and heaven and earth are utterly full of the glory of your holiness.

-Traditional Ethiopian prayer

The Byzantine hymn Bogorodice Djevo sung by the Serbian singer Divna Ljubojevic.

O Virgin Theotokos, rejoice! Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Thou art blessed among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, for thou hast given birth to the savior of our souls.

I Praise the Virgin, a popular Coptic Orthodox hymn singing Mary’s praises.

I praise the Virgin
And explain and say

O the origin
And the hidden pearl

Through your Son, Our Lady
Cause of salvation

We reached the goal
And you brought us joy


Your love embraced me
O pride of nations

Moses has seen you
Surprised and marvelled

And the lamps are bright
With golden crosses

O Mary, Moses’ dome
O Aaron’s censer
