Hymns

Troparion (Tone 3)

O venerable father Nicephorus the Leper,
your struggles and courageous asceticism dumbfounded heaven's angels.
Like another Job in pain,
you endured and gave glory to God.
And so, he arranged for you a resplendent crown of miracles.
Rejoice, O guide of monastics!
Rejoice, O prism of light!
Rejoice, O delightful fragrance radiating from your relics!

Kontakion (Tone 2)

O venerable father Nicephorus,
shunning pain and bodily corruption,
like a horse you gallop towards the heavens,
the steadfast support of lepers.
A brilliantly lit temple of God,
your body shone in its illness.
