Днесь спасение миру бысть,
поем Воскресшему из гроба Начальнику жизни нашея:
разрушив бо смертую смерть,
победу даде нам и велию милость.

Today salvation is in the world,
sing to the One raised from the grave, Head of our life:
who destroyed death by His death,
and has given us the victory, and great mercy.
