(After rising from sleep, stand with reverence and fear of God, make the sign of the cross, and say:)
In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Glory to you, our God, glory to you.
Heavenly King, comforter, the Spirit of truth, who are present everywhere filling all things, Treasury of good things and Giver of life, come and dwell in us, Cleanse us of every stain, and save our souls, gracious Lord.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us (3).
Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen.
All holy Trinity, have mercy on us, Lord, forgive us our sins. Master, pardon our transgressions. Holy One, visit and heal our infirmities for your name’s sake.
Lord have mercy (3), Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen.
Our Father who art in heaven.
Hallowed be thy name.
Your kingdom come,
Your 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.
Having risen from sleep, we fall down before you. O good One, and sing to you, mighty One, the angelic hymn: Holy, holy, holy art thou, O God. Through the prayers of the Theotokos, have mercy on us.
Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Having aroused me from sleep and bed, O Lord, enlighten my mind and open my heart and lips that I may sing to you, Holy, holy, holy, art thou, O God. Through the prayers of the Theotokos, have mercy on us. Now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen.
Suddenly the judge will come and everyone’s deeds will be revealed. But with awe we cry out in the middle of the night: Holy, holy, holy art thou, o God, through the prayers of the Theotokos, have mercy on us.
Lord have mercy (12)
As I rise from sleep, I thank you, Holy Trinity, for because of your great goodness and patience, you were not angry with me, an idler and sinner, nor have you destroyed me in my sins, but have shown your usual love for me. And when I was prostrate in despair, you raised me to glorify with your power. Enlighten now my mind’s eye, open my mouth to study your words and understand your commandments, to do your will and sing to you in heartfelt adoration, and praise your most holy name, of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen.
Glory to you, King, God almighty, who through your divine and loving providence have consented that I, an unworthy sinner, should rise from sleep and obtain entrance into your holy house. Accept, Lord, the voice of my prayer as you accept those of your holy and spiritual powers. And that not through my defiled lips, but from a pure heart and humble spirit. Praise may be offered to you so that I also, with the bright lamp of my soul, may become a companion of the wise virgins and glorify you, God the Word, who is glorified in the Father and the Spirit. Amen.
Come, let us worship and fall down before our King and God.
Come, let us worship and fall down before Christ, our King and God.
Come, let us worship and fall down before Christ himself, our King and our God.
PSALM 50 (51)
Have mercy upon me, O God according to your great mercy, and according to the multitude of your compassion blot out my transgression.
Wash me thoroughly from my sin. For I acknowledge my iniquity, and my sin is ever before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done evil in your sight, that you may be found just when you speak, and victorious when you are judged.
For behold, I was conceived in iniquity, and in sin mother bore me.
For behold, you have loved truth, you have made known to me the secret and hidden things of your wisdom.
You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be made clean, you shall wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me to hear joy and gladness that the afflicted bones may rejoice.
Turn your face away from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and establish me with your governing Spirit.
I shall teach transgressors your ways, and the ungodly shall turn back to you.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, my tongue shall joyfully declare your righteousness.
Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare your praise,
For if you had desired sacrifice, I would give it, you do not delight in burnt offerings.
A sacrifice to God is a broken spirit,
God will not despise a broken and a humble heart.
Do well in your good pleasure to Zion and let the walls of Jerusalem be built.
Then you shall be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, with oblation and whole burnt offerings.
Then they shall offer bulls on your altar.
THE SYMBOL OF FAITH
I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, creator of heaven and earth and all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages.
Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not created, of one essence with the Father, through whom all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became man.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried.
On the third day he rose according to 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.
His kingdom will have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord the Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father, who together with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who spoke through the prophets.
In one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I expect the resurrection of the dead.
And the life of the age to come. Amen.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen. Lord have mercy (3)
Through the prayers of our holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us, and save us. Amen.
