Hymn of Praise to St. Athanasius the Apostolic

Athanasius O holy man

The exposer of the tricks of the devil
The destroyer of Arius' heresy
Our father Abba Athanasius

Peter the Seal of the Martyrs
Saw in his vision Jesus called him
Forbidding him to accept Arius
Peniout abba Athanasius

In a courageous spirit
You defeated Arianism
O the protector of Christianity
Peniout abba Athanasius

Your constitution of the faith Is an evidence to every man
About God the Judge
Peniout abba Athanasius

The adornment of theology
Of the Lord of hosts
When He became incarnate
Peniout abba Athanasius

An expert free of arrogance
Your life is light out of light
Free of all wickedness
Peniout abba Athanasius

You withstood Constantine
With unbending power
You shamed the heretics
Peniout abba Athanasius

They annoyed you with accusations
They poured curses on you
Arius died in his foolishness
Peniout abba Athanasius

Several times you were exiled
You counted all trials as naught
You won the talents
Peniout abba Athanasius

The world was against you
And you were against the world
In your purity and honesty
Peniout abba Athanasius

You went to Christ
Joyful and comforted
In gladness and with praise
Peniout abba Athanasius

You received the crowns
In the heaven of Emmanuel
In the place of rejoicing
Peniout abba Athanasius

Your honor has increased
More than all the thrones
The enemies were confounded
Peniout abba Athanasius

Blessed are you with blessings
In Jesus the Lord of powers
You endured many afflictions
Peniout abba Athanasius

Say “ je axios”
To the friend of Abba Anthony
The apostle of the Lord Jesus
Peniout abba Athanasius

Cyril the Pillar of faith
Dioscorus the faithful hero
And Athanasius are eternal
Peniout abba Athanasius

You are great in your strife
Wise in your guidance
Intercede for your children
Peniout abba Athanasius

You are a strength and a model
throughout all generations
Immovable like mountains
Peniout abba Athanasius

O the defender of the faith
The beloved of the Son of man
He granted you power and authority
Peniout abba Athanasius

The Exposition of your name is
In the mouths of the believers
All of them proclaim:
"O God of St. Athanasius help us all."
