Like a spiritual daystar in heaven's firmament,
thou didst encompass the whole world and didst enlighten men's souls.
Hence, thy name is glorified in the East and West.
For thou didst shine with the grace of the Sun of Righteousness, O John, our beloved shepherd. Wherefore cease not to entreat Christ, that He may have mercy on our souls.
