How to pray The Trisagion Chaplet
The chaplet consists of three sets of nine small beads,
with each set separated by a large bead.

Begin by making and saying the Sign of the Cross

V. O Lord, Thou wilt open my lips
R. And my mouth shall declare Thy praise
V. O God, come to my assistance
R. O Lord, make haste to help me
Pray 1 Glory Be

On each of the three large or separator beads,
say the following prayers
V. Holy God, Holy Strong One, Holy Immortal One
R. Have mercy on us
followed by 1 Our Father

On each of the nine small beads in each group, pray
V. To Thee be praise, to Thee be glory, to Thee be thanksgiving through endless ages, O Blessed Trinity
R. Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Hosts:
the heavens and the earth are full of Thy glory
After each group of nine beads, pray
1 Glory Be

Concluding Prayers:
Antiphon - With all our heart and voice, we acknowledge,
we praise and we bless Thee,
God the Father, unbegotten;
Thee the only begotten Son;
Thee the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete,
O Holy and undivided Trinity.
To Thee be honor and glory forever.
V Let us bless the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
R. Let us praise and exalt Him above all forever.
Let us pray;
Almighty and everlasting God, who hast given unto us, Thy servants, grace by the confession of the true faith to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of Thy divine majesty to worship the Unity; we beseech Thee, that by our steadfastness in this same faith, we may ever-more be defended from all adversities.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Deliver us, save us, vivify us, O Blessed Trinity.

The Angelic Trisagion is a hymn of praise to the Holy Trinity. The chaplet is the official prayer of the Order of the Blessed Trinity, also known as the Trinitarians. The Trinitarians unite with the nine choirs of Angels in praise of the Holy Trinity.

Holy Trinity

The Trisagion Hymn is accepted to have been divinely revealed at Constantinople as the praises sung by the angels in Isaiah (6:3) or Revelation (4:8). The hymns follow the prayers of the Trisagion, and is one of the most ancient hymns in the Christian church.
John of Damascus accounts the Trisagion as being imparted by angels to a child in an ecstasy.
The Trisagion should not be confused with the Sanctus (“Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of power and might...”), which has a separate history and tradition.

Trisagion prayers are recited in the liturgies of certain Eastern and Orthodox Catholic churches. They are also prayed in the chaplets of Divine Mercy and in the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
