Filled with divine grace thou didst serve in the Church/ as a deacon of God the Word, O Apostle./ By the working of miracles and signs from God/ thou didst enlighten the multitudes of Samaria./ O blessed Philip, entreat Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
Having attained to an angelic state/ thou didst sound forth as a golden trumpet of revelation,/ and nourish the chosen people with thy words./ The chant of thy hymns is gladdening the Church/ for which thou didst struggle, O Theophanes.
In honour thou dost rank with Ireland's Enlightener,/ O Lover of the Desert, Composer of sacred verse,/ Father of Monks and Founder of Monasteries, O Father Cainnech./ Labouring for Christ, both in thy native land and in Scotland,/ Thou art a tireless intercessor for the faithful./ Pray for us who hymn thee, that despite our frailty we may be granted great mercy.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit/ thou didst enlighten the world with thy teachings and resplendent miracles,/ O Apostle Philip, initiate in sacred truths.
Having thundered the divine incarnation of Christ,/ thou didst convict the fleshless foes,/ O wonderful Theophanes./ We beseech thee to pray for us all. 11 - 17
Glorious art Thou, O Christ our God/ Who hast established our holy fathers as stars on earth./ Through them Thou dost guide us to the True Faith./ O Most Merciful One, glory to Thee.
The preaching of the Apostles and the doctrine of the Fathers confirmed the one faith in the Church./ In the garment of truth woven from theology on high she rightly divides and glorifies true piety.
The Son Who shone from the Father/ was ineffably born in two natures of a woman./ We do not deny the image of His form/ but depict it piously and revere it./ For this cause the Church, holding the true Faith,/ kisses the icon of Christ's Incarnation.
