The Divine Liturgy Of The Armenian Church - page 1/12 (The Mass)
The Celebrant starts the Liturgy at the feet of the altar, invocating the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
O mystery, deep, unknowable, without beginning, you appointed with splendid glory the heavenly hosts, ranks of fiery spirits, to the nuptial chambers of the unapproachable light.
Heavenly King, preserve your Church unshaken and keep the worshippers of your name in peace.
By the intercession of the holy Mother of God, accept our prayers, O Lord, and save us.
Let us make the holy Mother of God and all the Saints intercessors with the Father in heaven, that he may will and be merciful, may have pity and save us, his creatures. Almighty Lord, our God, Save us, and have mercy on us.
Accept, Lord, our prayers, through the intercession of the holy Mother of God, the immaculate mother of your only begotten Son, and through the prayers of all your saints. Hear us, Lord, and have mercy, forgive, expiate, and remit us our sins. Make us worthy to thank and to glorify you with the Son and with the Holy Spirit, now and always and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
The celebrant asks the Lord for the pardon of his sins. Let us say with him: I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned through my own fault in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do; and I ask the blessed Mary, ever Virgin, all the angels and saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.
May God almighty have mercy on you and grant you forgiveness for all your trespasses of past, and present; may he deliver you from those in the future and may he confirm you in all good works and give you rest in the life to come. Amen.
The celebrant implores the mercy of God upon the faithful. May God, who loves mankind, set you also free and may he remit all your transgressions, may he grant you time to do penance and good works; may he, mighty and merciful, guide your future life in the Holy Spirit; unto him glory for ever. Amen.
Remember us also before the immortal Lamb of God.
May you be remembered before the immortal Lamb of God.
I will go unto the altar of God,
unto God who makes my youth joyful.
Do judgment for me, God,
and do justice to me in my cause.
Deliver me from the unholy generation,
from the sinful and deceitful man.
You are, God, the giver of my strength;
why did you forget me?
why do I get depressed
when my enemies persecute me?
Send, Lord, your light and your truth
so that they may guide me
and take me up your holy mountain to your dwelling.
I will go to the altar of God,
to God who makes my youth rejoice.
I will profess you with praise, Lord my God.
Then why are you so anguished, my soul,
and why do you aggravate me?
Have hope in God, profess him,
God is the one who delivers me from punishment!
Glory be to the Father and the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Now and always and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
Let us always ask the Lord for peace.
Let us praise the Father of our lord Jesus Christ, who made us worthy to stand in this place of giving praise to sing spiritual songs.
Almighty Lord, our God, save us and have mercy.
