Troparion — Tone 4

By sharing in the ways of the Apostles, / you became a successor to their throne. / Through the practice of virtue, / you found the way to divine contemplation, O inspired one of God; / by teaching the word of truth without error, / you defended the Faith, even to the shedding of your blood. / Hieromartyr Antipas, entreat Christ God to save our souls.

Today with hymns and praises let us acclaim Antipas, / light of the world and famous hierarch, / champion of truth and teacher of Pergamum. / He intercedes with Christ our God that we may be saved.
