Greatmartyr James the Persian, Troparion, Tone IV — In his suffering, O Lord,/ Thy martyr Jamesreceived an imperishable crown from Thee our God;/ for, possessed of Thy might,/ he set at nought the tormentors and crushed the feeble audacity of the demons.// By his supplications save Thou our souls. Or this troparion, in the same tone — Thou hast astonished all by thy terrifying torments/ and the valor of thine endurance, O much suffering one,/ most wondrously uttering prayers of thanksgiving to the Lord/ as each of thy members was severed from thy body./ Wherefore, receiving a crown amid thy suffering,/ thou hast ascended to the throne of Christ God, the King of heaven.// Entreat Him, O James, that He save our souls. Kontakion for the Greatmartyr, Tone II — Persuaded by thy good spouse,/ O James who wast patient of soul,/ and fearing rather the dread tribunal,/ thou didst spit upon the Persians' command and the fear of them,/ and didst show thyself to be an honorable martyr// whose body was pruned like a vine.
