Ныне силы небесныя
с намы невидимо служат.
Се бо входит царь славы.
Се жертва тайная
совершена дориносится.
Верою и любовию приступим,
да причастницы жизни вечныя будем.

Now we serve the
invisible powers of heaven.
Behold the King of glory enters.
The mysterious sacrifice
is accomplished, it is announced.
We begin with faith and love,
but we will share in eternal life.
