St. Herman of Alaska

Troparion (Tone 4)

O blessed Father Herman of Alaska,
North star of Christ's holy Church,
The light of your holy life and great deeds
Guides those who follow the Orthodox way.
Together we lift high the Holy Cross
You planted firmly in America.
Let all behold and glorify Jesus Christ,
Singing his holy Resurrection.

Kontakion (Tone 3)

The eternal light of Christ our Savior
Guided you, blessed Father Herman,
On your evangelical journey to America
To proclaim the Gospel of peace.
Now you stand before the throne of glory;
Intercede for your land and its people:
Peace for the world and salvation for our souls!
