Sretensky Monastery (Russian: Сретенский монастырь) is an Orthodox monastery in Moscow, founded by Grand Prince Vasili I in 1397. It used to be located close to the present-day Red Square, but in the early 16th century it was moved northeast to what is now Bolshaya Lubyanka Street. The Sretensky Monastery gave its name to adjacent streets and byways, namely Sretenka Street, Sretensky Boulevard, Sretensky Lane and Sretensky Gates Square.

Transcript:

My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit rejoices in my Savior God.

More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, without corruption you gave birth to God the Word: True Mother of God, we magnify you.

Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed  more holy than the Cherubim, and more glorious than the incomparable Seraphim,

God who gave birth to the Word without corruption, true Mother of God, we magnify you.

Because He that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and Holy is His name, And His mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear Him.

More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, God who gave birth to the Word without corruption, true Mother of God, we magnify you.

He hath shewed might in His arm: He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, true Mother of God, we magnify you.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble.

More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, without corruption you gave birth to God the Word: true Mother of God, we magnify you.

He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy: As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever.

More honorable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, without corruption you gave birth to God the Word: true Mother of God, we magnify you.
