Troparion of St Eleath
Tone 8
Thou didst exchange armed combat with the heathen for the spiritual warfare of the monastic life, O Father Eleath.
Look on those who now hymn thee, O thou who didst praise God with thy poetic talents He gave thee,
and intercede with Christ our God that our souls may be saved.
