The Church skips and claps her hands at the sacred Resurrection of the Savior, and now for the repose of the Champion, chanting: two good things have been joined together.
There is nowhere on the earth, nor on the sea, nor in the city, nor the desert, in which the sounds of your wonders has not reached, O Martyr, forming an overflowing sea, for your wondrous name is praised throughout the whole earth.
All of the peoples of the nations praise, bless and hymn, crying out together: Rejoice, O savior, the joy of the faithful, rejoice, you who are the boast of Champions, O supremely-wondrous George.
-Excerpts from the Matins Canon of St. George the Great Martyr and Trophy-bearer
