Edward, King and Martyr

Celebrating the newly manifest commemoration of the holy King Edward, who shone forth of old in the virtues and suffered undeservedly we all bow down before the Icon of his honored countenance and in gladness cry out: Truly Thou art wonderful in thy Saints, O Lord!

Troparion, Tone 4
