Russian Assumption
Troparion, Tone 1
In giving birth thou didst preserve thy virginity; in falling asleep thou didst not forsake the world, O Mother of God. Thou wast translated to life, O Mother of Life, and by thy prayers thou didst deliver our souls from death.

Kontakion, Tone 2
Neither the tomb nor death could hold the Mother of God, who is sleepless in her intercessions and an unchanging hope in her mediations. For as the Mother of Life she was transferred to life by him who dwelt in her ever-virgin womb.
