Благослови душе моя Господа.
Благословен еси Господи.
Господи, Боже мой, возвеличился еси зело.
Во исповедание и в велелепоту облеклся еси.
На горах станут воды.
Дивна дела Твоя, Господи.
Посреде гор пройдут воды.
Вся премудростию сотворил еси.
Слава Ти, Господи, сотворившему вся.
Слава Отцу и Сыну и Святому Духу.
И ныне и присно и во веки веков. Аминь.

Bless the Lord, my soul.
Blessed are You, Lord.
The Lord, my God, has magnified himself greatly.
In glory and in greatness He has clothed Himself.
There will be water on the mountains.
Your works are wonderful, Lord.
In the middle of the mountains shall be water.
You have created all this in your wisdom.
Glory to You, Lord, who created everything.
Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Is now and forever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
