Repose of Saint Alexander Nevsky - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Christ revealed you, O Blessed Alexander / as a new and glorious worker of wonders; / a man and a prince well pleasing to God / and a divine treasure of the Russian Land. / Today we assemble in faith and love / to glorify the Lord by joyously remembering you. / He granted you the grace of healing, / therefore entreat Him to strengthen your suffering spiritual children, / and to save all Orthodox Christians.

Kontakion — Tone 8

We honor you as a most radiant, spiritual star, / rising up from the east; going down in the west! / As you enriched the Russian people with good works and miracles, / so now enlighten us who remember you in faith, O Blessed Alexander. / Today as we celebrate your falling asleep, we ask you to beseech the Lord / that He may strengthen his suffering servants and save all Orthodox Christians!
