Martyr Nicephorus of Antioch, in Syria - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Nicephorus, O Lord, / through his suffering has received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your strength, he laid low his adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 1

Bound with chains of love, O Nicephorus, / you demolished the malice of hatred. / And when beheaded, you became a holy martyr for the Incarnate Savior. / Pray to Him for us who praise your glorious memory in song.
