Ἄναξ ὑπάρχων Χριστέ μου τῶν ἀνάκτων,
κύριός τε καὶ ποιητὴς τῶν ἁπάντων,
Θεοφάνην φύλαττε τὸν σὸν οἰκέτην
τεύξαντα βίβλον τὴν νέαν θείῳ πόθῳ·
δίδου δὲ σθένος καὶ κράτος τε ἐξ ὕψους
λιταῖς ἀλήκτοις τῆς τεκούσης ἀφθόρως
Προκοπίου τε τοῦ θείου μάρτυρός σου,
ἣν ἀνέθηκεν νεὼ τῷ τούτου πίστει
ἀντιλάβοι δὲ λύσιν ἀμπλακημάτων.

Translation(s) Oh Christ, Thou Who art King of Kings and Lord and creator of all, protect they servant Theophanes, who produced this new Holy book with pious zeal, and give strength and power from on high, through the unceasing supplication of the immaculate Mother and of Procopius the holy martyr, to whose church he piously donated it, that he may receive remission of his sins.
