Hieromartyr Basil the Bishop of Amasea

Troparion — Tone 4

As a minister of the King of glory, you withstood the lawless king, / blessed and glorious Hieromartyr Basil. / When you were beheaded, / you entered the heavenly mansions rejoicing. / Pray that those who celebrate your memory may be found worthy of like reward.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Special Melody: "Today You have shown forth..."

By defying the emperor’s decree / you were granted the Kingdom of heaven; / remember us who faithfully celebrate your memory while you rejoice.
