Right-believing Prince Lazarus the Great Martyr of Serbia

Troparion — Tone 3

Longing for the beauty of God’s glory, / you were found pleasing to Him while yet in the flesh / and by good deeds multiplied the talents entrusted to you. / Having suffered greatly, even to the shedding of your blood, / you received the crown of martyrdom from Christ. / By your prayers, O Lazar, entreat Him to save us who sing to you.

Kontakion — Tone 8

Your flock glorifies you as a valiant champion of true piety / and a glorious martyr, O most wise Lazar. / Since you have boldness before Christ our God, entreat Him to grant peace to those who praise you, / that we may cry: “Rejoice, O praise-worthy Lazar!”
