Слава в вышних Богу, и на земли мир, в человецех благоволение.
Хвалим Тя, благословим Тя, кланяем Ти ся, славословим Тя,
благодарим Тя, великия ради славы Твоея.
Господи Царю Небесный, Боже Отче Вседержителю,
Господи, Сыне Единородный, Иисусе Христе, и Святый Душе.
Господи Боже, Агнче Божий, Сыне Отечь, вземляй грехи мира, помилуй нас;
вземляй грехи мира, прийми молитву нашу, Седяй одесную Отца, помилуй нас.
Яко Ты еси един Свят, Ты еси един,
Иисус Христос, в славу Бога Отца. Аминь.
На всяк день благословлю Тя и восхвалю имя Твое во веки и в век века.
Сподоби, Господи, в день сей без греха сохранитися нам.
Слодоби, Господи, в день сей сохранитися нам.
Благословен еси, Господи, Боже Отец нашихи
хвально и прославлено имя Твое во веки, Аминь.
Буди, Господи, милость, Твоя на нас,
якоже уповахом на Тя. Помилуй мя. Исцели душу мою.
Благословен еси, Господи, научи мя оправданием Твоим.
К Тебе прибегох. Господи, прибежище был еси нам в род и род.
Азрех: Господи, помилуй мя, исцели душу мою, яко согреших Тебе.
Господи, помилуй мя творити волю Твою,
яко Ты еси Бог мой: яко у Тебе источник живота,
во свете Твоем узрим свет.
Пробави милость Твою ведущим Тя.
Святый Боже, Святый Крепкий, Святый Безсмертный, помилуй нас.
Слава Отцу и Сыну и Святому Духу,
и ныне и присно и во веки веков, Аминь.
