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

Psalm 145:

Praise the Lord, O my soul. I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. Put not your trust in rulers, in the sons of men, in whom there is no salvation. His spirit departs and returns to its earth; on that day all his projects perish. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God. Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; Who keeps troth for ever: Who executes judgment for those who are wronged, Who gives food to the hungry. The Lord releases those who are bound. The Lord makes wise the blind; the Lord straightens those who are bent; the Lord loves the righteous. The Lord protects strangers, He supports the orphan and the widow; and wipes out the way of sinners. The Lord will reign for ever, Thy God, O Sion, throughout all generations.

Now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

O only-begotten Son and Word of God, Who art immortal, yet didst deign for our salvation to be incarnate of the Holy Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary and without change didst become man, and wast crucified, trampling upon death by death: Do Thou, O Christ our God, Who art one of the Holy Trinity, glorified with the Father and the Holy Spirit, Save us.
