Господи сил с нами буди,
иного бо разве Тебе помощника в скорбех не имамы:
Господи сил, помилуй нас.

Хвалите Бога во святых Его, хвалите Его во утвержении силы Его.
Господи сил с нами буди:

Хвалите Его на силах Его, хвалите Его по множеству величествия Его.
Господи сил с нами буди:

Хвалите Его во гласе трубнем, хвалите Его во псалтири и гуслех.
Господи сил с нами буди:

Хвалите Его в тимпане и лице, хвалите Его во струнах и органе.
Господи сил с нами буди:

Хвалите Его в кимвалех доброгласных, хвалите Его в кимвалех восклицания: всякое дыхание да хвалит Господа.
Господи сил с нами буди:

Хвалите Бога во святых Его, хвалите Его во утвержении силы Его.
Господи сил, с нами буди:

Слава: Господи, аще не быхом святыя Твоя имели молитвенники,
и благостыню Твою милующую нас:
како смели быхом Спасе, пети Тя,
Егоже славословят непрестанно ангели?
Сердцеведче, пощади души наша.

И ныне: Многая множества моих Богородице прегрешений,
к Тебе прибегох Чистая, спасения требуя.
Посети немощствующую мою душу,
и моли Сына Твоего и Бога нашего,
дати ми оставление, яже содеях лютых,
едина Благословенная.

Всесвятая Богородице, во время живота моего не остави мене,
человеческому предстательству не ввери мя:
но Сама заступи, и помилуй мя.

Все упование мое на Тя возлагаю, Мати Божия,
сохрани мя под кровом Твоим.

I don’t know if above Gospodi Sil s Nami Budit song which is in Church Slavonic – ( Ancient Bulgarian Language) has translation somewhere on the Internet but as far as I checked I couldn’t find any translation and hence I took some time trying to approximately translate, above included text I found on the Internet.

It is a bit hard for me and maybe I’m mistaken somewhere in the translation as I’m not understanding very well Church Slavonic but I hope the song will give a general idea, what this so beatiful song lyrics are approximately saying in modern English.


Text song the Gods Power will be with us, You we have as helper in our sorrows, Let God’s Power have mercy on us.
Praise him and and His Power, Praise Him becaues of his Great Mercies. – performed by Moscow’s Sretenski Monastery Church Choire

Gods Power will be with us … helper in our sorrows we have. God’s power will be with us
Oh Power / (force) of God, have mercy on us!

Praise (Glorify) the Lord in his holiness, praise him testifying his power.
God’s Power / (force) will be with us!

Glorify Him because of his power, Praise him because of his multitude of greatness-es.
Gods Power will be with us!

Praise (Glorify) Him with voice of trumpets, Praise him with Psalms and (pipes ?).
Gods Power will be with us!

Praise Him in (timpans and lices – not sure how this is translated – means other musical instruments?) – Praise him in strings and organs.
Gods Power will be with us!

Praise Him with cymbals and (good hearted?) voices, praise him, praise Him with exclamations: every living soul (exhalation) to glorify the Lord.
Gods Power will be with us:

Praise the Lord in all holiness, Praise Him in statement of his power.
Gods Power will be with us:

Glory: Oh Lord, If we do not have (byhom?) Your holy prayer books,
and the goodness of thy prayer books and the goodness of all saints who pray for us; what would we do oh Saviour, we who sing you.

You are glorified all time by Angels

You who glorify all the time Angels.
Seer of all hearts, have mercy on our souls.

And again: Many are my prayers oh Holy Theotokos / (Virgin Mary), I have come to you the most pure, asking (requiring) rescue.

Come to my infirm (weak) soul,
and pray Your Son and and Our Lord,
to grant me Forgiveness of sins,
Because I’m poor and week (in evil), You who are most Blessed among Mankind.

Oh you most Holy Theotokos, in my lifetime don’t leave me on a human mercy (hope) but you alone intercede on my behalf and Have Mercy on Me!

All my hopе I give to you, Oh Mother of God,
Rescue (Кееp) me under your Shelter / (Shroud).

God’s Power Will be With Us is a triumph song of Victory of the Holy Orthodox Christian faith and the Orthodox Christians over all evil that is in the post sin fallen world. It is a Victorious Chant stating God’s power is with all us Orthodox Christians.

It is an expression of the power that our Holy Orthodox Christian faith contains. Gods power will be with us is a well known for all Eastern Orthodox Slavonic Christians. It is being sing in most if not all Slavonic Eastern Orthodox Churches around the world i.e. – Bulgaria, Russia, Serbia

It is common that this very beautiful Ancient Church Slavonic song is being nowdays sung, by Orthodox Christian choires even in the Western World which so sadly is nowdays predominated by Roman Catholic and Protestant (denominations beliefs). Here is God’s power will be with us – as sung in Church Slavonicin a Roman Catholic Chapel

Orthodox Christian Chant – Gospodi sil s nami (Russe Znamenny) / Gospodi sil s nami budit

Господи cил c нами буди sung by – Мужской Хор Свято-Данилова Монастыря – Не Отврати Лица Твоего
6 – Господи сил с нами буди

Pojanje Koviljskih Monaha-Psalam 150 (Part of Gospodi sil s nami budit – Repetancance Great Lent Canon sing in Serbian Monasteries)

This Church chanting song is sing in the Great Lent Church period around all Slavonic Churches around the world. The spiritual deepness the song contains and spiritual joy is amazingly great for us Eastern Orthodox Christians; it is barely impossible to explain in words, but I hope by listening it the listener re-unites with our Christ = (Messiah) = Saviour and his Holy Apostolic Church – The Orthodox Church!

This Orthodox Song is also present, probably in Greek, Syriac, Jerusalem, Ethiopian,Coptic, Chinese and the rest of local Orthodox Church-es throughout the whole universe. If someone from other Orthodox Churches reading this post, can point me out to their Church variant of these glorious Church hymn I will be mostly thankful!

Glory be to the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit now and Forever and Ever. For Gods Power – Christ’s Holy Spirit will be with us ever unto the Ages of Ages accordinly to the promise of our Lord Jesus in Holy Gospels.
