The most common megalynarion is the one used at the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom: It is truly meet to bless thee, O Theotokos, ever blessed and most blameless and the Mother of our God: More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, who without corruption gave birth to God the Word, true Theotokos, we magnify thee.
