Glory be to thee, O Jesus

Written by the hand of Viktor Krivorotov

GLORY be to thee, O Jesus, 
our triumphant king, brightness of the eternal Father, 
begotten before time and before aught had being ; 
we have no hope or expectation but in thee. 
By the intercession of the righteous and elect
who have been pleasing to thee from the beginning, 
forgive us our sins and pardon our iniquities ; 
deliver us from our tribulations, 
grant our petitions and bring us to thy glory,
protecting us by thy living Cross 
from all harms, seen and unseen,
O Christ our hope, now, always, and for ever.
