This setting of Boh sja raĹždajet is taken from the 1969 booklet Christ is Born: Glorify Him. The English translation is by Monsignor William Levkulic (verse 1), J. Michael Thompson (verses 2 and 3), and Fr. Michael Schudio (verse 4).

The text and music were reviewed as part of the Hymnal Project of the Metropolitan Cantor Institute. See the discussion page for details.


This setting was originally printed in the booklet Christ is Born: Glorify Him (1969), by Monsignor Levkulic.

It was later published in the 1970 collection Byzantine Liturgical Chant, on page C7 (number 10 in the Christmas Carols section), and in the Hymns section of Monsignor Levkulic's The Divine Liturgy, a Book of Prayer (1978).

Verses were added from The Divine Liturgy: An Anthology for Worship (Ukrainian Catholic, 2004), and from My Divine Friend (1959), a Ukrainian Sunday and holyday missal by Redemptorist Father Michael Schudio
