Glorification Melody for Abu Sefin

A Hymn of Praise for Philopateer Mercurius

I open my mouth with praise And glorify the Name of Jesus
I praise the martyr of Christ Philopateer Mercurius

He wore the body armour and the helmet and was strengthened by God
He was steadfast and righteous Philopateer Mercurius

Blessed is Abu Sefein Philopateer Mercurius
He became an example for the two heroes Hatia and Gregory

The angel of God gave him Unto his own hands
A sword to defeat his enemies Philopateer Mercurius

He took a sword of fire To destroy the evil ones
He remembered his Almighty God Philopateer Mercurius

He held his glittering sword He was joyful and humble
His became popular with the people Philopateer Mercurius

He led his soldiers With the sign of the Cross
He fought the barbarians Philopateer Mercurius

When the barbarians saw the two swords They fled and disappeared
From that great hero Philopateer Mercurius

The commander Decius Thought his god Theophilos
Had helped Mercurius To become victorious

He ordered Mercurius Ordered him to worship idols
He did not fear his power Philopateer Mercurius

Mercurius went with joy To that arrogant commander
He proclaimed with a loud voice Philopateer Mercurius

I am a servant Jesus The powerful Christ our God
Who brings life to all the souls Philopateer Mercurius

The king became outraged and confused And ordered in front of everyone
To execute the chosen hero Philopateer Mercurius

So he ordered his soldiers To bring torches of fire
To burn the sides of his body Philopateer Mercurius

Incense and many fragrances Came forth from his body
His heart was overjoyed Philopateer Mercurius

The kings personal ministers Ordered many torturings
And every time he was protected By Archangel Michael

The king Decius and the pagans Conspired charges against him
They decided to behead him Philopateer Mercurius

Christ stood by him At the time of his martyrdom
His face shone with glory Philopateer Mercurius

His body became glowing white And light shone from his body
And incense came from his body Philopateer Mercurius

On the 25th of Hatoor He won the victorious crown
He went up to heaven Philopateer Mercurius

The angels chanted in heaven Axios Axios Axios
The beloved of martyrs Philopateer Mercurius

The exposition of his name Is in the mouth of the believers
All of them proclaim O God of St. Mercurius help us all.
