Theotokos of the Sign (source)

From you, our God who is before eternity,
became a child!

He has made your womb His throne,
making it more spacious
than the heavens.

In you, O woman full of grace,
all creation exults.

Glory to you!

(Joseph Raya, Theotokos: Mary Mother of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, 40.)
