Troparion in tone 4

YOUR HOLY MARTYRS, O LORD,
THROUGH THEIR SUFFERINGS HAVE RECEIVED THEIR INCORRUPTIBLE CROWNS FROM YOU, OUR GOD!
FOR HAVING YOUR STRENGTH, THEY LAID LOW THEIR ADVERSARIES,
AND SHATTERED THE POWERLESS BOLDNESS OF DEMONS.//
THROUGH THEIR INTERCESSIONS, SAVE OUR SOULS!

Kontakion in tone 2

YOU HAVE APPEARED AS BRIGHT LAMPS, HOLY MARTYRS!
ILLUMINE THE WHOLE CREATION WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF YOUR MIRACLES!
DELIVER IT FROM INFIRMITY AND DRIVE AWAY THE DEEP DARKNESS,//
ALWAYS INTERCEDING BEFORE CHRIST GOD FOR US ALL!
