St. Sergius Troparion, Tone 4 — A zealot of good deeds and a true warrior of Christ our God, you struggled greatly against the passions in this passing life; in songs and vigils and fasting you were an image and example to your disciples, thus the most Holy Spirit lived within you, and you were made beautiful by His working.  Since you have great boldness before the Holy Trinity, remember the flock which you have wisely gathered, and do not forget to visit your children as your promised, O venerable Sergius, our father!
