This is a teśbohtā from leliyā on Monday. The strophes are in the form of couplets. Each line consists of two phrases with five (2 + 3) syllables in each phrase. The singers seem to place this penta-syllabic structure over an 8-beat pattern in the rendition of the melody.

O Redeemer, turn to thy servants’ supplications,
And receive our petition and answer our prayers.
For thou art the shelter and hope of the weak,
By thy help we shall conquer the machinations of the devil.
For, behold, he always sets nets for our souls
And the deceiver desires to corrupt us by his iniquity.
O Lord, send thy power and break his snares,
Lest he should catch us and we should fall in the abyss of sin.
Let the power of thy grace strengthen us who are weak,
And may we please thee by our deeds, O Merciful One.
Make us worthy to sing unceasing praise to thee
On the day of thy coming, forever and ever, amen.
