:As the bountiful harvest of Your sowing of salvation,
:The lands of North America offer to You, O Lord, all the saints who have shone in them.
:By their prayers keep the Church and our land in abiding peace
:Through the Theotokos, O most Merciful One.
[[Kontakion]] – (Tone 3)
:Today the choir of Saints who were pleasing to God in the lands of North America
:Now stands before us in the Church and invisibly prays to God for us.
:With them the angels glorify Him,
:And all the saints of the Church of Christ keep festival with them;
:And together they all pray for us to the Pre-Eternal God.
