4 As I arise from sleep, I worship You O good and almighty Lord and I sing praises to You with the song of the angels in heaven: Holy! Holy! You are Holy, O God! Through the prayers of the Theotokos and all the saints, have mercy on me. Lord, you have allowed me to awake from sleep and have raised me from my bed; I pray that You will enlighten my mind and open my heart and my lips so I may praise You by saying: O Holy Trinity! Holy! Holy! You are Holy, O God! Through the prayers of the Theotokos and all the saints, have mercy on me. As I arise from sleep, I thank You -- O Holy Trinity. Through Your great goodness and patience You were not angry with me, a sinner. You did not destroy me because of my sins, but You have shown me Your love by raising me up this morning so I may glorify Your power. Enlighten my mind and my heart so I may understand Your commandments, that I may do Your will, and praise Your holy name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen. Prayers for the Living Lord, grant the forgiveness of sins, peace, health, salvation, and all good things worthy of Your blessing to your servants. [Here you should remember and pray for people, by name. Consider your Priest, members of your family, friends, and anyone else you wish to include. Don t forget to consider those who are sick, and those who you may have sinned against.

Remember us in Your Kingdom. Prayers for the Departed Merciful Lord, grant forgiveness and eternal rest to those who have departed this life before me in faith and the hope of resurrection to eternal life. In Your Kingdom, O Lord, remember Your servants. [Here you should remember people, who have fallen asleep in the Lord, by name. Consider the members of your family, friends, and anyone else you with to include.] For You Christ our God -- are the resurrection, the life, and the repose of Your servants who have fallen asleep, and to You we send up glory, together with Your eternal Father and the all-holy, good, and life-giving Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.

17 The Song of the Theotokos (The ever-virgin Mary, and Mother of our God) My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim; without defilement you gave birth to God the Word; true Theotokos we magnify you! For He has regarded the humility of His handmaiden. Behold, from this time all generations will call me blessed. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim; without defilement you gave birth to God the Word; true Theotokos we magnify you! For He who is mighty has done great wonders for me; and His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim; without defilement you gave birth to God the Word; true Theotokos we magnify you! He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim; without defilement you gave birth to God the Word; true Theotokos we magnify you! He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim; without defilement you gave birth to God the Word; true Theotokos we magnify you! He has taken Israel as His child in remembrance of His mercy, as He promised to our fathers -- to Abraham and his children forever. More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim; without defilement you gave birth to God the Word; true Theotokos we magnify you!
