St. Makarios in Tone 1

At each service we sing a hymn venerating St. Makarios the Great, the patron saint of our congregation.  Read more about St. Markarios or listen to the hymn as sung in Byzantine Tone 1.

Citizen of the desert and angel in the body,
You were a wonderworker, our God-bearing father Makarios!
You received heavenly gifts, through fasting, vigil and prayer,
Healing the sick and the souls those who run to you in faith.
Glory to Him who gave you strength!
Glory to Him who granted you a crown!
Glory to Him who through you grants healing to all!
