Свете тихий святыя славы,
Безсмертнаго, Отца Небеснаго, Святаго Блаженнаго, Иисусе Христе!
Пришедше на запад солнца,
видевше свет вечерний,
поем Отца, Сына и Святаго Духа, Бога.
Достоин еси во вся времена
пет быти гласы преподобными,
Сыне Божий, живот даяй,
темже мир Тя славит!

English.png English translation

O joyful light of the holy glory of the immortal Father,
the heavenly, holy, blessed Jesus Christ.
Now that we have reached the setting of the sun
and behold the evening light,
we sing to God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
It is fitting at all times to praise you
with cheerful voices,
O Son of God, the Giver of life.
Behold, the world sings your glory.
