It is right that every tongue should glorify, every voice attest, every creature venerate and celebrate the adorable and glorious name of the most holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

who created the world in their loving kindness and out of their goodness saved men and granted to mortals eternal benefits.

Thousands upon thousands of heavenly spirits bless and adore you, myriads and myriads of angels, their spirits on fire, sing to your name.

With the cherubim and seraphim, they glorify and adore your grandeur saying to each other as they proclaim unceasingly: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; heaven and earth are filled with his wonderful presence, with the splendor of his greatness. Hosanna in the highest, hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes and who will come with heavenly power in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
