Original text and translations

Church_Slavonic.png Church Slavonic text

И ныне и присно
и во веки веков. Аминь.
Преблагословенна еси Богородице Дева,
Воплощшим бо ся из Тебе ад пленися,
Адам воззвася, клятва потребися,
Ева слободися, смерть умертвися,
и мы ожихом.
Тем воспевающе вопием:
благословен Христос Бог,
благоволивый тако, слава Тебе.

English.png English translation

Now and for ever,
to the end of ages. Amen.
Blessed are you, virgin mother of God,
embodiment of the captivity of hell,
Adam's cry, requirement of oaths,
Eve's freedom, the killing of death,
and my anticipation.
They cry out their praises:
Blessed is Christ our God,
as with you, favored one, we bless you.
