This short Scriptural verse from the story of the Annunciation (Luke 1:35) is sung in some parishs before the sermon or homily, as an invocation of the Holy Spirit upon the one who will preach.

The melody is the same as that used for the A setting in our Divine Liturgies book for "May our mouth be filled with your praise" (DL 84) and "Blessed be the name of the Lord" (DL 88) at the end of the Divine Liturgy.

For the Slavonic version, see Duch Svjatyj snidet na t'a.
