Молитву пролию ко Господу,
и Тому возвещу печали моя,
яко зол душа моя исполнися,
и живот мой аду приближися,
и молюся яко Иона: от тли, Боже, возведи мя.

English.png English translation

I will pour forth my prayer unto the Lord
and to Him will I declare my grief;
for my soul hath been filled with evils,
and my life hath
drawn nigh unto hell;
and like Jonah I cry: Lead me up from corruption, O God!
