Τῶν ὑπὲρ ἡμᾶς ὁ γλυκασμὸς ἀγγέλων,
ἡ χαρὰν ἐκβλύζουσα τοῖς λυπουμένοις,
τῶν χριστιανῶν ἡ κραταιὰ προστάτις,
μῆτερ θεοῦ πάναγνε, σεμνὴ παρθένε,
ἀντιλαβοῦ μου κατὰ τόνδε τὸν βίον.
τῷ ἀρχηθήτει Συμεῶνι τῷ τ᾽ ἄλλα
καὶ βασάνων ῥῦσαι με τῶν αἰωνίων
τῶν ἐπερχομένων μοι ἀνθρώπων τὰς κακώσεις
καὶ δός ἡμῖν δύναμιν ὑπομονῆς γε.
