Christ is born! Glorify Him!

Christmas in the Carpatho-Rusyn Tradition

Spas Nas Narodilsja

Jesus Came from Heaven

Spas nas narodilsja
V t'il'i Boh javilsja
Chot' On nevmistimyi,
V jasl'ach pomistilsja
:Chory anhelski spivajut.
Narozdennaho vitajut'.
Slava! Slava! Slava!
Slava v vysnich Bohu.

Jesus came from heaven,
Adam's Son through birth.
Just a lowly stable,
A King's palace on earth.
:Choirs of angels joyfully sing:
Welcome to the new-born King.
Glory! Glory! Glory!
Glory to God in the highest.
