N´ne otpushchayesh´ raba Tvoyego, Vlad´ko,
po glagolu Tvoyemu s mirom,
yako videsta ochi moi spaseniye Tvoye,
yezhe yesi ugotoval pred litsem vseh liudey,
svet vo otkroveniye yaz´kov,
i slavu liudey Tvoih Izrailia.
Lord, now lettest thou thy servant
depart in peace, according to thy word,
for mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
which thou hast prepared before the face of all people,
a light to enlighten the gentiles,
and to be the glory of thy people Israel.
