Troparion of Saint Nicholas
St Nicholas Center Collection
You were revealed to your flock
as a measure of faith.
You were the image of humility
and a teacher of self-control.
Because of your humble life,
heaven was opened to you.
Because of your poverty,
spiritual riches were granted to you. O holy Bishop Nicholas
we cry out to you:
Pray to Christ our God
that our souls may be saved.
The truth of thy deeds
hath revealed thee to thy flock as a canon of faith,
an icon of meekness,
and a teacher of abstinence;
for this cause thou hast achieved the heights by humility,
riches by poverty,
O Father and Hierarch Nicholas,
intercede with Christ God that our souls may be saved.
Greek Orthodox Dismissal Hymn
The sincerity of your deeds
has revealed you to your people
as a teacher of moderation,
a model of faith,
and an example of virtue.
Therefore, you attained greatness through humility,
and wealth through poverty.
O Father and Archbishop Nicholas,
ask Christ to save our souls.
The truth of your dealings,
our Father and Bishop Nicholas,
showed you to your flock as a standard of faith,
as the image of gentleness,
and as a teacher of self-discipline.
By lowliness you attained to the heights,
by poverty to great riches.
Therefore, we beseech you,
pray to Christ our God for the salvation of our souls.
