Akathist Hymn

Apolytikion: With great valour of Soul, thou didst strive in Martyrdom, and having fought the good fight, O Divine Great Martyr Menas, thou from Heaven hast received the Gift of Miracles; for God hath shown thee to the world as a worker of great signs, and He made thee our protector and a swift help in afflictions and ever-vigilant defence from harm.

Kontakion: The entire world has found you to be a great champion when in grave perils; for many you have saved from losses: tracking the thieves‚ driving away deprivations and fulfilling the requests of those that run to you in faith; for these we Pray to you‚ be merciful to us who sing to you: Rejoice‚ O Holy Martyr Menas the Great Passion Bearer.
