Troparion

The Veneration of the Precious Chains of the Holy Pre-eminent Apostle Peter, Troparion, Tone IV —
Without leaving Rome thou art come to us in the precious chains which thou didst bear, O first-enthroned of the apostles; and, bowing down before them with faith we pray: through thy supplications unto God grant us great mercy!

Kontakion, Tone II, "Seeking the highest" —
Christ the Rock most splendidly glorifieth the rock of faith, the first-enthroned of His disciples; for He summoneth all to celebrate the wonders of thy precious chains, O Peter, and granteth forgiveness of offenses.

And this Kontakion, Tone II, "The Theotokos who is ever-vigilant in prayer" —
Let us praise the great Peter, the chief and first among the apostles, the divine disciple of the Truth, and with faith let us kiss his chains, receiving release from our transgressions.
