Хвалите имя Господне,
хвалите раби Господа,
Благословен Господь от Сиона
живый во Иерусалиме,
Не поведайтеся Господеви, яко благ,
яко в век милость Его,
Не поведайтеся Богу небесному,
яко в век милость Его,

English.png English translation

Praise the name of the Lord,
praise our teacher Lord.
Blessed be the Lord from Zion,
those living in Jerusalem.
Unfathomable Lord, who is good,
whose mercy is for ever.
Unfathomable God of heaven,
whose mercy is for ever.

Translation by Barry Johnston
