Свете тихий святыя славы,
Безсмертнаго, Отца Небеснаго, Святаго Блаженнаго, Иисусе Христе!
Пришедше на запад солнца,
видевше свет вечерний,
поем Отца, Сына и Святаго Духа, Бога.
Достоин еси во вся времена
пет быти гласы преподобными,
Сыне Божий, живот даяй,
темже мир Тя славит!

O joyful light of the holy glory of the im­mortal Father,
the heavenly, holy, blessed Jesus Christ.
Now that we have reached the setting of the sun
and behold the evening light,
we sing to God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
It is fitting at all times to praise you
with cheerful voices,
O Son of God, the Giver of life.
Behold, the world sings your glory.
