In the feast of the three daughters: Faith, Hope, and Love
And their Mother Sophia, named for her wisdom:
For in them she gave birth to the three godly virtues.
Now they eternally behold their bridegroom, God the Word.

O our three Heavenly Protectors,
Establish, confirm and strengthen us
In Faith, Hope and Love.
Kontakion in tone 1
The children, Faith, Hope, and Love,
Were as three young promises of holiness to the Venerable Sophia.
Through divine grace, they confounded Greek philosophy:
They fought and obtained an incorruptible crown from Christ the Master of all!
