Troparia and kontakia for May 9

Prophet Isaiah

Troparion — Tone 4

With a great voice like that of a trumpet, / you proclaimed the coming of Christ to the world. / You were revealed as a swiftly-writing scribe of the things to come; / therefore, we acclaim you with hymns, / most illustrious prophet Isaiah.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Endowed with the gift of prophecy, / prophet-martyr Isaiah, herald of God, / you made clear to all the incarnation of Christ / by proclaiming with a great voice: / “Behold, the Virgin shall conceive in her womb.”

Martyr Christopher of Lycia

Troparion — Tone 4

O Christopher, robed in the purple of your martyrdom, / You came before the Lord of heaven; / Therefore with the choirs of angels, / You now sing the Thrice-Holy Hymn. / Intercede for the salvation of those who honor you.
