Only-begotten Son and immortal Word of God,
Who did will for our salvation to become incarnate
of the holy Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary;
Who without change did become man and was crucified;
Who art one of the Holy Trinity, glorified with the Father
and the Holy Spirit:
O Christ our God, trampling death by death,
O save us.
