Lyrics to Blessed is the Virgin (Bogoroditse Devo) Blessed is the Virgin (Bogoroditse Devo)
Rachmaninoff Vespers, No. 6

Bogoroditse Devo, raduysia
Rejoice, virgin, God-bearer
Blagodatnaya Mariye,
Mary, full of grace,

the Lord be with you.
Blagoslovenna Ti v'zhenah.
Blessed are you amongst women
i Blagosloven Plod chreva Tvoyego
and blessed is the Fruit of your Womb
yako Spasa rodila yesi dush nashih.
for you have borne the Savior of our souls
