Let us praise in hymns the six–fold choir of Apostles:
Herodion and Agabus,
Rufus, Asyncritus, Phlegon and holy Hermes.
They ever entreat the Trinity for our souls!

You became the disciples of Christ
And all-holy Apostles,
O glorious Herodion, Agabus and Rufus,

Ever entreat the Lord
To grant forgiveness of transgressions
To us who sing your praises.

Like stars, O holy Apostles,
You illumine the way of the faithful with the light of the Holy Spirit.
You dispel the darkness of error as you gaze on God the Word!
