Хвалите имя Господне. Аллилуйиа.
Хвалите, раби, Господа.
Благословен Господь от Сиона,
 живый во Иерусалиме.
Исповедайтеся Господеви, яко Благ.
Яко в век милость Ево.
Аллилуйиа Исповедайтеся Богу Небесному.
Аллилуйиа, aллилуйиа

Praise the name of the Lord. Alleluia.
Praise, Rabbi, Lord.
Blessed be the Lord out of Zion,
 who inhabits Jerusalem.
Give praise unto the Lord, as a blessing.
As in the age of His grace.
Alleluia to the God of heaven.
Alleluia, alleluia.
