Your holy martyrs Agathopodes and Theodulus, and those with them, O Lord, / through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. / For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through their intercessions, save our souls!

As courageous soldiers of Christ, / you scattered the enemy principalities, O blessed martyrs. / Rejoicing in one spirit, you proclaimed together: / “Christ is the crown of athletes.”
