Hymns

Troparion (Tone 1) [1]

Let us the faithful praise Zosimas the offspring of the wilderness,
the angel in the flesh and boast of monks.
And with him let us also acclaim holy Mary of Egypt
whose life transcended the limits of nature;
and let us cry to them:
"Glory to Him Who strengthened you;
glory to Him Who made you holy;
glory to Him Who through you works healings for all."
