which you give us for our eternal well-being.
Your glory shines radiantly in your saints, O God
In the honour and noble victory of the martyrs.
The white-robed company follow you,
bright with their abundant faith;
They scorned the wicked words
of those with this world’s power.
For you they sustained fierce beatings,
chains, and torments,
they were drained by cruel punishments.
They bore their holy witness to you
who were grounded deep
within their hearts;
they were sustained
by patience and constancy.
Endowed with your everlasting grace,
may we rejoice forever
with the martyrs in our bright fatherland.
O Christ, in your goodness,
grant to us the gracious heavenly realms
of eternal life.
