GOD OF OUR FATHERS,
DO NOT TAKE AWAY YOUR MERCY FROM US,
BUT EVER ACT TOWARDS US ACCORDING TO YOUR KINDNESS,
AND BY THE PRAYERS OF YOUR SAINTS,
GUIDE OUR LIVES IN PEACE!

TROPARION TONE 1

WE BESEECH YOU, LORD OF MANKIND,

THE SUFFERING WHICH YOUR SAINTS ENDURED FOR YOUR SAKE, O LORD,
AND HEAL ALL OUR INFIRMITIES!
