This hymn to our Lord Jesus Christ is one of a number of such spiritual songs that were at one time sung at Holy Communion. It can also be sung fittingly immediately before the Divine Liturgy.

For the Slavonic version, see Vitaj mežd nami.


Two verses with music were included on page H-3 of the 1970 collection, Byzantine Liturgical Chant, as one of nine hymns for Holy Communion. The English translation was credited to "Fr. E. Dunda and Fr. W. Levulic"; this is the text used above.

Fr. William Levkulic printed English and Slavonic versions (text only) on page 153 of his The Divine Liturgy: A Book of Prayer (1978).
