Venerable Sava the Sanctified - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

With the streams of your tears you cultivated the barrenness of the desert; / and by your deep sighs, you bore fruit a hundredfold in your labors. / You became a luminary, shining upon the world with miracles. / O our righteous Father Sava, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved!

Kontakion — Tone 8

From your youth you offered yourself to God as a blameless sacrifice, / having been dedicated to Him before your birth, blessed Sabbas. / You were an adornment of the righteous and a praiseworthy citizen of the desert. / Therefore, we cry to you: “Rejoice, ever glorious Father.”
