Batushka - Yekteniya III (Ектения III: Премудрость) (English translation)

English translation

Yekteniya III (Litany III: Wisdom)

Wisdom, stand aright1,
Come worship [Me]
And fall down before Me,
 
I will save you.
 
I give to him that asks
Wisdom and understanding,
And I give communion to
Him that have sinned.
 
I appoint repentance unto salvation
 
I vouchsafe you,
Lowly and unworthy
Servants of Mine,
To stand in this hour before the glory,
Before the glory of My holy altar.
 
And to offer the worship,
And to offer the worship,
And glory due unto Me.
 
Wisdom, stand aright,
Come worship [Me]
And fall down before Me,
I will save you.
 
  • 1. Orthodox Christians stand during services, so the words "Премудрость, прости" are the reminder to stand straight and listen to everything that follows VERY carefully.

Author's comments:

The lyrics are basically the text of The Prayer of the Trisagion Hymn, which is turned inside out (the "You" and "I" pronouns are switched places), so the vocalist speaks on behalf of God.
