Φαῦσον τὴν ἐμὴν ἡτωρὴν ἀργιλώδη
ταῖς πρὸς κοίρανον θερμαῖς σοῦ ἐξεσίαις·
κλινεῖ γὰρ εἰς σὰς εὐχὰς ὁ πλάστης, κόρη,
τὸ πανάχραντον καὶ ἀκήρατον ὡτίον.
αἰτεῖ πρὸς ταῦτα ὁ σὸς πιστὸς οἱκέτης,
ὁ συνώνυμος Καππαδόκων τῆς χώρας,
ὅστις γεωργὸς εὐσεβείας ἐδείχθη,
ἄθλησιν δι’ αἵματος σοφῶς τελέσας,
μισθὸν ἐκομίσατο τούτου τῶν πόνων·
οὗ ταῖς πρεσβείαις καὶ τῇ σῇ παρρησίᾳ,
δίδου, ἄνασσα, λύσιν τῶν ἀλειτίων
καὶ τὴν οἴκησιν παράσχου ἀλυσίου.

Translation(s) Verses to the mother of God
Give light to my clayer heart, O Maiden,
with thy ardent interventions to the Lord,
because to thee the Creator does incline
His wholly undefiled and uncompounded ear.
This, too, is the petition of thy faithful servant,
him of the salfsame name, who cultivated
godliness in the land of Cappadocia,
who consummated his struggle with his blood,
and received the wages of his labours.
with whose embassage and thy free-spokenness
grant absolution for sins, O heavenly queen,
and by thy favour a dwelling place in Paradise.
