Apolytikion of Great Martyr George in the Fourth Tone

Liberator of captives, defender of the poor, physician of the sick, and champion of kings, O trophy-bearer, Great Martyr George, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.

Leader now on earth no longer,
Soldier of th’ eternal King,
Victor in the fight for Heaven,
We thy loving praises sing.
Chorus:
Great St. George, our patron, help us,
In the conflict be thou nigh;
Help us in that daily battle,
Where each one must win or die.   (From the Westminster Hymnal)
