Socrates and Stephen, Martyrs at Monmouth, Wales
Hymn (Tone 1)
didst win the crown of martyrdom, O noble Socrates and Stephen,
when thou, following in the footsteps of both our nation's Patron
and our protomartyr, didst resist the edict of the God-hating Diocletian.
Pray to God that we also may be given strength to be faithful, even
unto death, that we too may inherit eternal life.
