Hi ya'll,

Today I stumbled along this awesome hymn that borrows the melody used in Agni Parthene which was compiled by St. Nektarios.

I don't know who compiled this one necessarily, but I believe it was a student form the Theological School up in Boston, MA. While Agni Parthene may be to the Virgin Mary, this hymn seems to be dedicated to Jesus Christ while keeping the same melody!

Anyway, here it is!

Awesome.

By the way, have any hymns from St. Nektarios' Theotokarion been translated into English, aside from "Agni Parthene"?

Nope, as far as I know, Agni Parthene is the only one thus far. I know although some people who are working on translations for thee other poems written by St. Nektarios.

What does "Agni" mean in Greek?
