Behold, the Bridegroom cometh at midnight,
And blessed is the servant whom He shall find awake.
But he whom He shall find neglectful is verily unworthy.
Behold therefore my soul;
Beware lest thou fallest into deep slumber
And the door of the kingdom be closed against thee
And thou be delivered unto death.
But be thou wakeful crying
Holy, holy, holy art Thou, O God!
Through the intercessions of the Theotokos have mercy on us.
