Holy Unmercenaries Cosmas & Damian, Troparion, Tone VIII —
O holy unmercenaries and wonderworkers Cosmas and Damian, visit our infirmities.// Freely have ye received, freely give unto us.

Kontakion, Tone II —
Having received the grace of healings,/ ye extend health to those in need,/ O all-glorious physicians and wonderworkers./ By your visitation cast down the audacity of the enemy,// healing the world with miracles.
