THE ONE HUNDRED FIFTY

July 27

From the Prologue

HYMN OF PRAISE

THE FIVE IN NUMBER

(ST. CLEMENT, ST. NAHUM, ST. ANGELARIUS,

ST. SAVA, ST. GORAZD)

The Five in Number, God's chosen ones,

Worthy bearers of the Evangelical honey,

Spread the Faith throughout the entire world

Until on the turquoise [sky blue] lake, they settled,

Yet with greater effort from there to labor

By the Lord to sweeten bitter human life.

Clement, hierarch, a true servant of God,

Who, much pain and ridicule endured,

He, from Ohrid, became Christ's banner,

With him, Saints Nahum, Angelarius, and Sava,

And Blessed Gorazd, five in number,

God's zealous laborers, all men of God.

In the heavens, for a thousand years they live,

For a thousand years, with them men are amazed.

The people they baptized, labor they did not regret,

With glory they were crowned, for God they loved.

The glory of the Five in Number, Ohrid preserves

The boast and glory of the Slavs, they are.
