Τῶν ὑπὲρ ἡμᾶς ὁ γλυκασμὸς ἀγγέλων,
ἡ χαρὰν ἐκβλύζουσα τοῖς λυπουμένοις,
τῶν χριστιανῶν ἡ κραταιὰ προστάτις,
μῆτερ Θεοῦ πάναγνε, σεμνὴ παρθένε,
ἀντιλαβοῦ μου κατὰ τόνδε τὸν βίον.
Τῷ ἀρχιθύτῃ Συμεῶνι τῷ τάλᾳ
καὶ δὸς ἡμῖν δύναμιν ὑπομονῆς γε·
τῶν ἐπερχομένων μοι ἀνθρώπων τὰς κακώσεις
καὶ βασάνων ῥῦσαι με τῶν αἰωνίων.
