Akathist Hymn

Apolytikion: Liberator of captives, defender of the poor, physician of the sick, and champion of kings, O Trophy-bearer, Great Martyr George, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.

Kontakion: Cultivated by God, you became manifest as an honorable tiller gathering for yourself the sheaves of virtue. For you sowed with tears but reaped with gladness; in the contest you competed with your blood and came away with Christ. By your intercessions, O Holy One, all are granted forgiveness of sins.

The Parents of Saint George are Saints too, their names are Saints Gerontius and Polychronia.
