A Sticheron Vespers St. Michael
Synaxis of the Archangel Michael and All Angels
Great Vesper tone IV special melody, "Thou hast given a sign..."
last sticheron on "Lord I have cried..."
Quell the ragings of the Moslems that often fall upon thy flock;
cause the schisms of the Church to cease;
calm the surging of the countless temptations;
from perils and evil circumstances
deliver those who with love honor thee
and have recourse to thy protection.
O Gabriel, supreme commander, intercessor for our souls.
