Sovet prevechnyi otkryvaya Tebe Otrokovice, Gavriil predsta,
Tebe lobzaya i veshaya: raduisya, zemle nenaseyannaya:
raduisya, kupino neopalimaya:
raduisya, glubino neudobozrimaya:
raduisya, moste k Nebesem privodyai,
i lestvice vysokaya, yuzhe Iakov vide:
raduisya, Bozhestvennaya stamno manny:
raduisya, razreshenie klyatvy:
raduisya, Adamovo vozzvanie, s Toboyu Gospod'
Gabriel stood before thee, O Maiden,
Revealing the pre-eternal counsel,
Saluting thee and exclaiming:
"Rejoice, O earth unsown!
Rejoice, O bush unburnt!
Rejoice, O depth hard to fathom!
Rejoice, O bridge leading to the heavens
and lofty ladder, which Jacob beheld!
Rejoice, O divine jar of Manna!
Rejoice, annulment of the curse!
Rejoice, restoration of Adam:
the Lord is with thee!
