Troparion — Tone 1
Let us praise Tikhon, the patriarch of all Russia,
And enlightener of North America
An ardent follower of the Apostolic traditions,
And good pastor of the Church of Christ.
Who was elected by divine providence,
And laid down his life for his sheep.
Let us sing to him with faith and hope,
And ask for his hierarchical intercessions:
Keep the church in Russia in tranquility,
And the church in North America in peace.
Gather her scattered children into one flock,
Bring to repentance those who have renounced the True Faith,
Preserve our lands from civil strife,
And entreat God’s peace for all people!
Kontakion — Tone 3
Today the assembly of New Martyrs
Stands together with us in the Church
And together we raise a festive song
Celebrating the uncovering of the relics of our Hierarch Father Tikhon
Who defeated the enemy and preserved the Faith
While protecting the flock entrusted to him.
For he ever prays for us all
That we may never be deprived of the Love of God.
