Celebrant: Hear us, O God, our Savior, the hope of all throughout the land and those far at sea. Be gracious to us in our sinfulness, merciful Master, and have mercy on us.
Choir: Lord, have mercy (3).
Celebrant: For You are a merciful and loving God, and we give glory to You, Fa­ther, Son and Holy Spirit, now and for ever and ever.
Choir: Amen.
Celebrant: On this Sunday, let us renew our faith in Jesus Christ and His Church.
All: I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father. Light from Light, true God from true God, begot­ten, not made, one in being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit He was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day He rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father. With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the forgive­ness of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
All: We accept and affirm the teachings of our holy fathers gathered throughout the centuries in the ecumenical councils of the Church. Amen.
Celebrant: This is the faith of the apostles. This is the faith of the fathers. This is the faith of the orthodox (true believers). This is the faith in which the world is made firm. Therefore, with paternal and fraternal love we praise all preachers of piety, who struggled honorably and gloriously for the faith, and say: to the defend­ers of orthodoxy - devout rulers, most holy patriarchs, bishops, teachers, martyrs and confessors: May your memory be eternal.
Choir: Eternal Memory! (Vichnaya Pamyat!)
Celebrant: Let us entreat God that we may be strengthened by their struggles, even unto death, - and instructed by their teachings, that we imitate their godly life to the end. May we be counted worthy of a favorable response to all our petitions through the mercy and grace of Christ our God, First Hierarch (our High Priest), through the prayers of our glorious Lady, the Mother of God and ever virgin Mary, the honorable and incorporeal powers and all the saints.
Choir: Amen.

Now You dismiss Your servant, O Lord,* according to Your word, in peace;
Because my eyes* have seen Your salvation
Which You prepared* before the face of all peoples.
A light to the revelation of the Gentiles,* and the glory of Your people, Israel.
Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy and Immortal, have mercy on us. Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy and Immortal, have mercy on us. Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy and Immortal, have mercy on us.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.
Trinity most holy, have mercy on us. Cleanse us of our sins, O Lord; pardon our transgressions, O Master; look upon our weaknesses and heal them, O Holy One; for the sake of Your name.
Lord, have mercy; Lord, have mercy; Lord, have mercy.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Celebrant: For the kingdom, the power and the glory are Yours, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and forever and ever.
Choir: Amen.
