Troparion — Tone 4

O righteous Father Alexis, / Our heavenly intercessor and teacher, / Divine adornment of the Church of Christ! / Entreat the Master of All / To strengthen the Orthodox Faith in America, / To grant peace to the world / And to our souls, great mercy!

Kontakion — Tone 5

Let us, the faithful, praise the Priest Alexis, / A bright beacon of Orthodoxy in America, / A model of patience and humility, / A worthy shepherd of the Flock of Christ. / He called back the sheep who had been led astray / And brought them by his preaching / To the Heavenly Kingdom!
