Holy Martyrs Hermylus & Stratonicus, Troparion, Tone IV —
In their sufferings, O Lord,/ Thy martyrs received imperishable crowns from Thee our God;/ for, possessed of Thy might,/ they set at nought the tormentors and crushed the feeble audacity of the demons.// By their supplications save Thou our souls.
Holy Fathers Slain at Sinai and Raithu —
O God of our fathers,/ deal with us ever according to Thy meekness./ Deprive us not of Thy mercy,/ but through their supplications// direct our life in peace.
Theophany of our Lord, Troparion, Tone I —
When Thou, O Lord, wast baptized in the Jordan,/ the worship of the Trinity was made manifest;/ for, the voice of the Father bare witness unto Thee,/ calling Thee His beloved Son;/ and the Spirit in the form of a dove/ confirmed the certainty of His word./ O Christ our God, Who hast appeared and enlightened the worlds,// glory be to Thee!
Kontakion of the Venerable Martyrs, Tone II, "Seeking the highest" —
Ye fled from the tumult of the world/ and have found rest in the calm haven,/ crowned with the blood of martyrdom/ and the labors of asceticism.// Wherefore, ye have been shown to dwell together with the martyrs and the venerable.
Kontakion of the Feast, Tone IV —
Thou hast appeared today to the whole world,/ and Thy light, O Lord, hath been signed upon us/ who hymn Thee with understanding./ Thou hast come, Thou hast appeared,/ the Light unapproachable.
