Venerable Joseph the Hymnographer

Troparion — Tone 2

Come, let us acclaim the divinely inspired Joseph, / The twelve-stringed instrument of the Word, / The harmonious harp of grace and lute of heavenly virtues, / Who lauded and praised the assembly of the saints. / And now he is glorified with them.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Your divinely inspired tongue was the pen of a ready scribe, / according to the words of David. / You sang of the contests of the saints / and described the grace they received through their labors. / Therefore, we cry to you: “Rejoice, O blessed harp of holy melody!”
