The Holy Great Martyr Demetrius the Myrrh-streamer

October 26

 

   

Μέγαν εύρατο εv τοίς κιvδύvοις,

σέ υπέρμαχοv η οικουμένη,

Αθλοφόρε τά έθνη τροπούμενον.

Ως ούν Λυαίου καθείλες τήν έπαρσιν,

εν τώ σταδίω θαρρύvας τόν Νέστορα,

ούτως Άγιε, Μεγαλομάρτυς Δημήτριε,

Χριστόν τόν Θεόν ικέτευε,

δωρήσασθαι ημίν τό μέγα έλεος.

   

The world has found in you

a great champion in time of peril,

as you emerged the victor in routing the barbarians.

For as you brought to naught the boasts of Lyaios,

imparting courage to Nestor in the stadium,

in like manner, holy one, great Martyr Dimitrios,

invoke Christ God for us, that He may grant us His great mercy.
