A boat that travels, the Holy Mountain

In the monasteries it guards precious beauties

and in the foundations many sweats

not set on displays

not said easily.

A boat that travels, the Holy Mountain

with Athos for mast

the Transfiguration for flag

the Virgin Mary for anchor.

Helper and shelterer, holy Athos

I kiss you, God-beholding Teacher

On Greece’s temple

the cross on the dome is Athos.

In the holds it carries sacramental wine (nama), honey, bees-wax and frankincense

for the hungry of the narthex,

the wounded of the pews.

Lyrics: Monk Moses Athonite
