Благослови, душе моя, Господа.
Благословен еси, Господи.
Господи Боже мой, возвеличился еси зело.
Во исповедание и в велелепоту облеклся еси.
На горах станут воды.
Дивна дела Твоя, Господи.
Посреде гор пройдут воды.
Вся премудростию сотворил еси.
Слава Ти, Господи, сотворившему вся.

English.png English translation

Bless the Lord, my soul.
Blessed are You, Lord.
O Lord my God, exceedingly great are You.
You are clothed with honor and majesty.
On the mountains water stands.
Your works are wonderful, Lord.
In the midst of the mountains there will be water.
In Your wisdom, You have created all.
Glory to You, Lord, who created everything.
