“Blessed is the man…” is sung.
At Psalm 140
In Tone 4
Out of the depths I cry to You, O Lord;* O Lord, hear my voice!
Because of your spiritual inheritance you were named Panteleimon.
By lovingly caring for the souls of all men and healing their bodies,
you were shown to be worthy of the wealth of your name.
By acquiring the reward of virtue and retribution of piety, O martyr,
you were revealed as a crown-bearing and invincible warrior of Christ our God.
Implore Him to save and enlighten our souls.
Let Yours ears be attentive* to the voice of my prayer.
