Lo, Thy care for thy flock in its sojourn /
prefigured the supplication which thou dost ever offer up for the whole world. /
Thus do we believe, having come to know thy love, O holy hierarch and wonderworker John. /
Wholly sanctified by God through the ministry of the all-pure Mysteries /
and thyself ever strengthened thereby,/
thou didst hasten to the suffering, O most gladsome Healer, //
Hasten now also to the aid of us who honor thee with all our heart.
