Kontakion of Martyr Agathangelus

Fourth Tone

Having blossomed forth from Rome, * the city famed for her Martyrs, * thou didst cause astonishment * unto thy namesakes, the Angels, * when they saw thy steadfast courage * and great endurance * in the torments thou didst suffer for Christ, O Martyr. * Wherefore, thou wast rightly hallowed * and didst receive grace * to work dread wonders and signs.
