St. Daniel the Stylite of Constantinople, Tone I — Thou wast a pillar of patience, O venerable one,/ emulating the forefathers:/ Job, in afflictions; Joseph in temptations,/ and the life of the incorporeal ones while in the body./ Entreat Christ God. O Daniel, our father,// that our souls be saved. Kontakion, Tone VIII "As first fruits" — Having ascended thy pillar like a star of great radiance,/ thou didst illumine the world with thy venerable deeds/ and didst dispel the gloom of deception, O father;// wherefore, we beseech thee: Shine forth even now in the hearts of thy servants the unwaning light of knowledge.
