O Holy Father Innocent / In obedience to the will of God / You accepted dangers and tribulations / Bringing many peoples to the knowledge of truth. / You showed us the way, / Now by your prayers help lead us into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Troparion — Tone 4

You evangelized the northern people of America and Asia, / proclaiming the Gospel of Christ to the natives in their own tongues. / Holy Hierarch Father Innocent, / enlightener of Alaska and all America, / your ways were ordered by the Lord! / Pray to Him for the salvation of our souls in His heavenly Kingdom!

A true celebration of the providence and grace of God / Is your life, O holy father Innocent, Apostle to our land. / In hardships and dangers you toiled for the Gospel’s sake / And God delivered and preserved you unharmed. / From obscurity He highly exalted you as an example / That the Lord truly guides a man in the way he should go.
