Thou art an impregnable wall and a source of miracles/ enabling us to subdue enemy attacks, O Mother of God./ Wherefore we pray thee, grant peace to the world and great mercy to our souls.
James the Martyr and scion of Persia/ drowned the dragon in his blood by his contest:/ he was dismembered for the Faith/ and became the Saviour's trophy-bearer./ He intercedes unceasingly for our souls.
Thou wast chosen of God from thy youth,/ and didst become a Hierarch shepherding God's people./ Wherefore after thy decease/ thou didst receive the gift of wonderworking to heal infirmities./ O Hierarch James, pray that we may magnify thee unceasingly.
Today we hymn thee, O Hierarch Seachnall,/ for as thou in thy piety didst compose the praises of our Father Patrick,/ pray to God for us that we may, with true piety, honour our saints./ And in praising this glorious company may we be worthy of their prayers and the great mercy of Christ our God.
We celebrate the venerable Icon of the Sign, most holy Mother of God,/ whereby thou didst grant thy city a wonderful victory over its enemies./ Wherefore we cry to thee with faith: Rejoice, O Virgin, thou boast of Christians.
Thou didst listen to thy wife and consider the judgment/ O courageous James./ Thou didst spurn the threats and commands of the Persians/ and thy body was pruned like a vine./ We praise thee; O noble Martyr.
Thou wast a champion among bishops and of one rank with the Hierarchs, O holy James./ Preserve thy city, thy fatherland and people who honour thee and venerate thy sacred relics,/ that with one accord we may cry to thee: Rejoice, O Hierarch James.
