Incipit (Opening Line)

ܫܡܘܢܐ ܘܓܘܪܝܐ ܣܗ̈ܕܐ ܕܢܨܚܘ ܒܐܘ̈ܠܨܢܝܗܘܢ: ܒܚܘܒܐ ܬܒܥܘܢܝ ܠܡܡܠܠܘ ܢܨܚܢ̈ܝܗܘܢ܀ 1
Shmônâ et Gouryâ, martyrs qui ont brillé par leurs tribulations, nous réclament avec amour de parler de leurs hauts faits. 1

Explicit (Closing Line)

ܒܗܠܝܢ ܣܗ̈ܕܐ ܕܗܪܟܐ ܩܘܫܬܐ ܗܐ ܡܬܡܠܠ: ܒܪܝܟ ܗ̣ܘ ܕܝܗ̣ܒ ܠܢ ܣܝܡܬ ܓܙ̈ܐ ܕܟܠܝ̈ܠܝܗܘܢ. 1
Dans ces martyrs voici que retentit la vérité; béni soit celui qui nous a donné les trésors de leurs couronnes. 1
