1- Blessed be our Faithful Good Lord,
Who finds Himself a humble lodge,
In the hearts of those who truly love,
There he rests and also dines.
R- In the shadows of night,
You drew God's light;
As a beacon shining far,
You were a constant guiding star
2- St. Macrina with virtue and grace,
Excelled among the women of her age.
And shown with the blessed saints;
A fine example we love to trace.
3- With hands sanctified by prayers,
And a heart blessed with Psalms,
To righteousness detoured your brothers,
To your mother you were the sweet balm.
4- You shielded Naucratius with God's grace,
Through you he felt His sweet embrace;
The river on the mountain was his place
There he hunted for the elderly and the poor.
5- And Basil who excelled in logic and debate,
Abandoned earthly wisdom and vanity,
With guidance he is a great saint,
Adding a pillar to the Heavenly Community.
6- By storms the family was tossed about,
When Naucratius died and Basil the devout,
Your faith calmed the waves, erased the doubt,
You were the raindrop to their temporary drought.
7- Basil and Naucratius, we forget not the youngest,
St. Peter the bishop who counts with the greatest,
St. Gregory of Nyssa and 4 other sisters,
In marriage and celibacy served the Highest.
