[Meaning] our god who exists always.

Ὁ ὤν: ὁ ἀεὶ ὢν θεὸς ἡμῶν.
Note:
The headword phrase is probably quoted from its best-known occurrence, in Exodus 3.14 LXX (cf. alpha 1186 and esp. omega 105), but it also appears on the nimbus of Christ in icons, to indicate divinity. The glossing phrase is not precisely paralleled elsewhere.
