Troparion of St. Romanus the Melodist (Tone 4)

Thou didst gladden Christ's Church by thy melodies like an inspired heavenly trumpet. For thou wast enlightened by the Mother of God and didst shine on the world as God's poet. We lovingly honour thee, O righteous Romanus.

Kontakion of St. Romanus the Melodist (tone 8)

From thy childhood divine virtues and gifts of the spirit were bestowed on thee, O wise Romanus. Thou wast a precious adornment of the Church with thy beautiful chanting, O blessed one. We entreat thee to grant us thy divine gift that we may cry to thee: Rejoice O most blessed Father, comeliness of the Church.
