Взбранной воеводе победительная,
яко избавльшеся от злых,
благодарственная восписуем Ти раби Твои, Богородице;
но яко имущая державу непобедимую,
от всяких нас бед свободи,
да зовем Ти: радуйся невесто неневестная.

You are the victorious, triumphant leader,
Who rids us of evil,
Mother of God, your servants lift hymns of thanksgiving to you,
to whom God has given invincible power, deliver us from all our troubles,
so we call to you, Hail! bride not-a-bride
