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!
