Original text and translations

Church_Slavonic.png Church Slavonic text

Достойно есть яко во истинну блажити Тя Богородицу,
присно блаженую и пренепорочную и Матерь Бога нашего.
Честнейшую херуфим и славнейшую без сравнения серафим,
без истления Бога Слова родшую, сущую Богородицу,
Тя величаем.

It is well-deserved to bless you in truth, holy virgin,
ever-blessed and immaculate, mother of our God.
More honorable than the cherubim and more glorious than the seraphim,
without defilement, born of God’s word, truly holy virgin,
we magnify you.
