Да исполнятся уста наша хваления Твоего, Господи,
яко да поем славу Твою,
яко сподобил еси нас причаститися Святым Твоим,
Божественным, безсмертным и животворяшим тайнам:
соблюди нас во Твоей святыни,
весь день поучатися правде Твоей.

Let our mouths be filled with Your praise, Lord,
that we may sing Your glory,
You have willed that we should take part in Your glory,
divine, immortal, and life-giving secrets:
Keep us in Your holiness,
to learn Your righteousness all the day.
