Troparion to St. Nicholas

Troparion to St. Nicholas, Tone 4


The truth of things revealed you to your flock as a rule of faith,

an icon of meekness and a teacher of abstinence;

  You thus reached the heights through humility and wealth through poverty;

 O Holy Hierarch Father Nicholas, pray to Christ God for the salvation of our souls.
