A Troparion to St Alexis, Apostle of Carpathian Rus. Tone II

Let the mountains sing and all the trees of the forest make glad,/
O holy father Alexis, Apostle of Carpathian Rus,/
beaten and banished by tyrants, thou, O living martyr,/
dost shine forth like unto gold refined in the crucible of this world./
And as thou didst guide thy people by thy wisdom and suffering, /
do thou guide us also,///
for thou dost intercede for the salvation of thy people and Orthodox everywhere.
