St. David of Thessaloniki - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Father, / for you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes away / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, venerable David, rejoices with the angels.

Kontakion — Tone 2

We bless you, servant of God David; / you are like the angels and estranged from earthly things. / Now you rejoice in divine gifts. / Grant us to share in them also, O holy and righteous Father!
