Troparion — Tone 8
Your life, O Basil, was true and your chastity undefiled. / In fasting, vigilance and exposure to heat and frost / You subdued your flesh for the sake of Christ. / Therefore your countenance shone with the brilliance of the sun. / Today the faithful glorify your holy falling-asleep. / Implore Christ to deliver us from all bondage, dissension and war, / And to grant great mercy to our souls!
