Glorification of Saint Tikhon, Apostle to America - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 1

Chosen by God in a turbulent time, / you glorified God in complete holiness; / and attained greatness through humility / you showed forth the power of God through simplicity and piety; / you laid down your life for the Church and her people, / O Holy Confessor and Patriarch, Father Tikhon, / pray to Christ God to Whom you were also crucified / that He may save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 2

A gentle manner adorned You / you showed kindness and compassion to those who repented / you were firm and unbending in confessing the Orthodox Faith / and zealous in loving the Lord / O Holy Hierarch of Christ and Confessor Tikhon / pray for us that we may not be separated from the love of God / which is of Christ Jesus, our King and Lord.
