The Seven Holy Youths

The Seven Holy Youths

Troparion of the holy Youths - Tone 4

O miracle of faith! The seven holy youths remained in a cave as though in a royal palace and died without corruption. After many years they rose up from sleep to convince all men of the Resurrection. Through their prayers, O Christ our God, have mercy on us all.

Kontakion of the holy Youths  - Tone 4

They forsook the things of the world as corrupt; they received the gifts of incorruption and remained in death without corruption. They arose after many years having buried their enemies' unbelief. Today as we praise these seven holy youths let us give glory to Christ.
