Morning Prayers

Having arisen from sleep, we fall down before Thee,
O Blessed One, and sing to Thee,
O Mighty One, the angelic hymn: Holy! Holy! Holy! art Thou, O God;
through the Theotokos, have mercy on us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

Do Thou, O Lord, Who hast raised me from my bed and from sleep,
enlighten my mind and heart, and open my lips that I may praise Thee,
O Holy Trinity: Holy! Holy! Holy! art Thou, O God;
through the Theotokos, have mercy on us.

Now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

The Judge will come suddenly and the acts of every man will be revealed;
but with fear we cry in the middle of the night: Holy! Holy! Holy! art Thou, O God;
through the Theotokos, have mercy on us.

Illumine our hearts, O Master Who loves mankind,
with the pure light of Thy divine knowledge.
Open the eyes of our mind to the understanding of Thy gospel teachings.
Implant also in us the fear of Thy blessed commandments,
that trampling down all carnal desires,
we may enter upon a spiritual manner of living,
both thinking and doing such things as are well-pleasing unto Thee.

For Thou art the illumination of our souls and bodies,
O Christ our God, and unto Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thy Father,
Who is from everlasting, and Thine all-holy, good, and life-creating Spirit,
now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
