From my youth until now, my eyes have been waiting for Your salvation. Now, since I slept in Your hope, give me rest among Your holy ones.ܡܶܢ ܛܰܠܝܘܽܬܝ ܥܕܰܡܳܐ ܠܗܳܫܳܐ ܆ ܠܦܘܽܪܩܳܢܳܟ ܣܰܟܺܝ̈ܝ ܥܰܝ̈ܢܰܝ ܆ ܘܗܳܫܳܐ ܕܫܶܟܒܶܬ ܥܰܠ ܣܰܒܪܳܟ ܆ ܐܰܢܺܝܚ ܢܰܦܫܝ ܥܰܡ ܩܰܕܺܝ̈ܫܶܐ ܀
Let Your cross shine on me in Sheol because the shadows of death surround me. Save me from torment, and make me worthy to enter Your bridal chamber [that is, the heavenly resting-place].ܨܠܺܝܒܳܟ ܢܰܢܗܰܪ ܠܺܝ ܒܰܫܝܘܽܠ ܆ ܕܚܰܕܪܘܽܢܝ ܛܶܠܳܠ̈ܰܝ ܡܰܘܬܳܐ ܆ ܘܰܦܪܘܽܩܰܝܢܝ ܡܶܢ ܬܰܫܢܺܝܩܳܐ ܆ ܘܰܐܫܘܳܢܝ ܕܶܐܥܘܽܠ ܠܰܓܢܘܽܢܳܟ ܀

Syriac Melody: ܪܰܡܪܶܡܰܝܢܝ
On the day of the commemoration of confessors, the Church is glad and rejoices, and honorable assemblies sing glory to God.ܒܝܘܽܡ ܕܘܽܟܪܳܢܳܐ ܕܡܰܘܕܝ̈ܳܢܶܐ ܆ ܚܳܕܝܳܐ ܥܰܕܬܳܐ ܘܰܦܨܺܝܚܳܐ ܆ ܘܟܶܢ̈ܫܶܐ ܙܗܰܝ̈ܳܐ ܕܚܰܒܺܝ̈ܒܶܝܗ̇ ܆ ܙܳܡܪܺܝܢ ܫܘܽܒܚܳܐ ܠܰܐܠܳܗܳܐ ܀
Neither a king rejoices over his crown nor a judge over his authority as the betrothed Church over the commemoration of the holy ones.ܠܳܐ ܚܳܕܶܐ ܡܰܠܟܳܐ ܒܬܳܓܶܗ ܆ ܘܠܳܐ ܕܰܝܳܢܳܐ ܒܫܘܽܠܛܳܢܶܗ ܆ ܐܰܝܟ ܕܚܳܕܝܳܐ ܥܺܕܬܳܐ ܡܟܺܝܪܬܳܐ ܆ ܒܕܘܽܟܪ̈ܳܢܰܝܗܘܽܢ ܕܩܰܕܺܝ̈ܫܶܐ ܀
God, You accepted, in Your mercies, the offering of the just of old, accept, in Your mercies, our offering and be pleased with our prayers. ܐܰܠܳܗܳܐ ܕܩܰܒܶܠ ܒܪ̈ܰܚܡܰܘܗ̱ܝ ܆ ܩܘܽܪܒܳܢܳܐ ܕܟܺܐܢ̈ܶܐ ܩܰܕܡ̈ܶܐ ܆ ܩܰܒܶܠ ܒܪ̈ܰܚܡܰܝܟ ܩܘܽܪܒܳܢܰܢ ܆ ܘܶܐܬܪܰܥܳܐ ܒܰܨܠܰܘ̈ܳܬܰܢ ܀
