Martyr Andrew Stratelates in Cilicia - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 5

You renounced the glory of earthly rank / and inherited the kingdom of heaven; / you adorned your incorruptible crown as with beautiful stones. / You led an army of martyrs to Christ, / and with the angels in the never-fading light / you found Christ the never-setting sun. / Together with those who suffered with you, / holy general Andrew, / ever pray to Him that He may save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Standing before the Lord in prayer like a star near the sun, / you were filled with ineffable joy beholding your desire: the treasure of the kingdom. / You sing without ceasing to the immortal King / together with the angels throughout the ages. / With them, general Andrew, unceasingly pray for us all.
