Достойно есть, яко воистину блажити Тя Богородицу,
присноблаженную и пренепорочную и Матерь Бога нашего,
Честнейшую херувим и славнейшую без сравнения серафим,
без истления Бога Слова рождшую, сущую Богородицу Тя величаем.

English.png English translation

It is truly meet to bless you,
O Theotokos,
ever-blessed and most pure,
and the Mother of our God.
More honorable than the Cherubim,
and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim,
without defilement you gave birth to God the Word.
True Theotokos we magnify you!
