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.

For the Slavonic version, see T’ilo Christove prijmu.


Two verses with music were included on page H-2 of the 1970 collection, Byzantine Liturgical Chant, as the first of nine hymns for Holy Communion. The English translation was credited to Fr. Ernest Dunda.

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