St. Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra in Lycia
Troparion, Tone 4:
As a rule of faith and model of tenderness and teacher of abstinence hath the reality shown thee unto thy flock;
therewithal hast thou acquired by humility greatness, by poverty riches;
O Father Hierarch Nicholas,
intercede before Christ God that our souls may be saved.
Kontakion, Tone 3:
Thou wast a faithful minister of God in Myra,
O Saint Nicholas./ For having fulfilled the Gospel of Christ,
Thou didst die for the people and save the innocent.
Therefore thou wast sanctified as a great initiator of the grace of God.
