Hail to you O martyr, Hail to the courageous hero,
Hail to the struggle-mantled, the saint Abba Mina.
Hail to you night and day, O brave hero,
your name filled every country, and places on earth.
Hail to the wonder worker, St. Mina the faithful,
hail to the strong hero, the believers’ intercessor.
Blessed are you and hail to you, O favored righteous one,
the angels chant to you, “Axios, Axios.”
