Βασίλειον διάδημα, ἐστέφθη σὴ κορυφή, ἐξ ἄθλων ὧν ὑπέμεινας, ὑπὲρ Χριστοῦ τοῦ Θεοῦ, Μαρτύρων πρωτόαθλε Στέφανε· σὺ γὰρ τὴν Ἰουδαίων, ἀπελέγξας μανίαν, εἶδες σου τὸν Σωτῆρα, τοῦ Πατρὸς δεξιόθεν. Αὐτὸν οὖν ἐκδυσώπει ἀεί, ὑπὲρ τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν.
O Stephen, a crown of royalty was laid on your head for contests you courageously endured for Christ our God, as first among Martyred saints. You stood in accusation of the raging Judeans; and you saw your Savior at the right hand of the Father. We pray that you will ever entreat Him to save our souls.
