During this the Priest quietly says


the prayer of the Great Entrance:

hast given us the ministry of this


and bloodless sacrifice, being Thyself the Lord of all. For
Thou alone, O Lord, our God, dost
reign in heaven and on earth. Who
art borne on the cherubic throne,
Who art the Lord of the Seraphim
and King of Israel; Who alone art
liturgic

holy and restest in holy places. I,


therefore, beseech Thee, Who alone
art gracious and merciful, look down
upon me. Thy sinful and unworthy
servant, cleanse my soul and heart
of evil thoughts, and do Thou,
hast clothed me with the grace of
the priesthood, permit me by the
might of Thy Holy Spirit to stand

consecrate Thy sacred and most
pure Body and precious Blood. For
I come to Thee with humility and
I beseech Thee: do Thou not turn

Thy face away from


me from among Thy

servants, but

that
these offerings be
brought to Thee by me, Thy sinful
and unworthy servant. For Thou
Thyself dost offer and art offered,

Christ, our God, and we give Thee
praise, together with Thine eternal
Father and Thy most holy, blessed
and life-giving Spirit, now and forever and ever. Amen.

dost

this prayer the Deacon incenses the altar, ikons and people,
reciting quietly Psalm 50. When the
incensing is completed, the Deacon
hands the censer to the Priest, who
holding same with his left hand,
with elevated arms says the following hymns quietly thrice, making
a profound bow after each time:

down from heaven, O Lord, upon


those who bow their heads unto
