Christmas in the Carpatho-Rusyn Tradition

Boh Sja Razdajet - God's Son is Born

We invite you to listen to Saint Michael's Byzantine Catholic Men's Choir of Campbell, Ohio sing this Christmas favorite in English or in Rusyn.

This carol is from their recording, The Joy of Christmas. This cassette had been sold out and was reissued last year.

Boh sja razdajet, kotz 'Ho mozet znati.
Isus Mu imja, Marija Mu mati.
Tut anhely cud'atsja, Rozdennaho bojat'sja
A vol stojit' trjasetsja, osel smutno pasetsja.
Pastirije kl'acut, v ploti Boha bacut',
Tutze, tutze, tutze, tutze tut!

God's Son is born, but a mystery to our mind
Jesus, His Name, means the Savior of mankind.
Now the angels sing their prayer,
Making known this child so fair.
Shepherds hear the angel's song,
Come and keep watch all night long.
Sheep and oxen gaze and warm this new-borne Babe;
For all creations knows this is their Lord.
