FROM THE CANON OF THE DEAD

Ode VIII

σταθερῶς τοὺς ἀγῶνας ἐπιδειξάμενοι

Euchologion, p. 412

tr., John Brownlie

8.8.8.8.8.8

I

Who toiled for Christ through suffering sore,

And meekly grief and anguish bore;

And in their service steadfast strove,

To serve the Master Whom they love,--

Now rest in His eternal peace,

Through ages that shall never cease.

II

Who toil as they, and faithful prove

The servants of the Lord they love,

When toil is o'er and suffering past,

Enter the bliss of heaven at last,--

And rest in His eternal peace,

Through ages that shall never cease.
