Боже, Боже мой, вонми ми, вскую оставил мя еси;
далече от спасения моего словеся грехопадений моих.
На Тя уповаша отцы наши.
Уповаша, уповаша и избавил еси.
Аз же есмь червь, а не человек,
поношение человеков и уничижение людей.
Ты же Господи,
Ты же не удали.
Помощь Твою, на заступление мое вонми.
Помощь Твою от мене.

O God, my God, why have you gone away from me?
why are you far from saving me, from my groans?
Our fathers trusted in you.
Trusted, and you delivered them.
But I am a worm, not a man, a reproach to mankind and a humiliation to people.
You are Lord,
You do not leave us.
You who are my help, be my defense.
Bring your help to me.
