Happy Feast of Saints Peter and Paul! [update]

Peter and Paul, the Fathers of great Rome,
Now sitting in the Senate of the skies,
One by the cross, the other by the sword,
Sent to their thrones on high, to Life’s eternal reward.

The second verse of the hymn for Vespers, with the English translation below:

First Vespers of Saints Peter and Paul

O happy Rome! Who in thy martyr princes’ blood,
A twofold stream, art washed and doubly sanctified.


All earthly beauty thou alone outshinest far,
Empurpled by their outpoured life-blood’s glorious tide.
