Тропарь преподобного Тита Печерского, бывшего воина, в Дальних пещерах
глас 3
Воинство тленное оставль,/ в нетленном ввоенился еси Христови,/ и оружием его крестным победив подземных ефиопов,/ победы венец от Христа, Тите, славно приял еси,/ Емуже молися даровати нам мир и велию милость.


Кондак преподобного Тита Печерского, бывшего воина, в Дальних пещерах
глас 6
Воина Христова храбраго,/ щитом преподобия обложшагося/ и воев невидимых крепко победивша,/ приидите, вернии, восхвалим,/ Тита крепкодушнаго и возопиим:/ прииди, святе, к нам и никтоже озлобит ны.
