Holy descendant of martyrs,/ thou didst eagerly follow their steps:/ while preaching the Savior's Name thou wast fulfilled in contest./ Wise and glorious Mamas,/ pray to Christ out God to save us.
Anointed by the Holy Spirit,/ thou didst serve God like an earthly angel,/ O Shepherd and Hierarch John./ Thou didst purify thyself through fasting/ and grant cleansing to those who eagerly run to thee.
In Tadcaster's Monastery, O Abbess Hieu,/ thou didst shine with the virtues of asceticism and humility./ Pray that we also may follow the example of thy great teacher, the Hierarch Aidan,/ and live lives of spiritual struggle that our souls may be saved.
Shepherd thy people in lifegiving pastures/ with the staff given thee by God./ And crush the invisible enemies beneath the feet of those who praise thee./ For all in danger have thee/ as a fervent intercessor, O holy Mamas.
Thou didst become like thy namesake the Forerunner, O John, for thou wast radiant with fasting and purity,/ Christ has made thee a worthy shepherd of His flock;/ beseech Him to save those who venerate thee.
