1. Благословен грядый во имя Господне,
Бог Господь и явися нам.

2. Видехом свет истинный, прияхом Духа Небеснаго,
обретохом веру истинную, нераздельней Троице покланяемся:
Та бо нас спасла есть. Аминь.

1. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,
the Lord God has appeared to us.

2. We have seen the true light, we have received the heavenly Spirit,
we have found the true faith, we worship the indivisible Trinity:
That which has saved us. Amen.
