Troparion — Tone 4
You appeared as a bright light on the island of Lake Seliger. / From your youth you took Christ’s cross on your shoulder. / You followed him zealously, O Father Nilus, / And by your purity you approached the divine likeness. / You were enriched with the gift of miracles; / And now we run to your relics compunctionately crying: / Entreat Christ our God that he may save our souls!
