7 Holy Youths “Seven Sleepers” of Ephesus - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — 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 — Tone 4

Those who renounced the perishing comforts of this world, / Preferring the eternal things of Heaven, / Were incorrupt after death and rose from the dead / And buried the snares of the devils! / O Faithful, let us then honor them, singing a hymn of praise to Christ!
