Existing One, Master, Lord God, Father Almighty, Worshipped One: it is truly just and right to the majesty of Your holiness that we should praise You, hymn You, bless You, worship You, give thanks to You, and glorify You, the only truly existing God; and to offer You our rational worship with a contrite heart and humble spirit, for You are He Who has graciously granted to us the knowledge of Your truth. -From Divine Liturgy of Basil the Great

O joyful light of the holy glory of the immortal Father, the heavenly, holy, blessed Jesus Christ. Now that we have reached the setting of the sun and behold the evening light, we sing to God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is fitting at all times to praise you with cheerful voices, O Son of God, the Giver of life. Behold, the world sings your glory.

O Lord, keep us this evening without sin. Blessed are you, O Lord, God of our fathers, and praised and glorified is your name to the ages. Amen. O Lord, let your mercy be upon us for we have set our hope in you. Blessed are you, O Lord, teach me your commandments. Blessed are you, Master, grant me understanding of your commandments. Blessed are you, Holy One, enlighten me with your commandments. Lord your mercy is forever. Do not despise the works of your hands. To you is due praise, to you is due song, to you is due glory, to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages.
