Hosts of angels on high

This hymn to the Holy Trinity is particularly suitable for singing during the feast of Pentecost, but can also be sung before the Divine Liturgy throughout the year.

For the Slavonic version, see Vs’i T’a chory.


Fr. William Levkulic printed English and Slavonic versions (text only) on page 153 of his The Divine Liturgy: A Book of Prayer (1978). His second verse ("Countless angels on high") summarizes the more complete listing in the Slavonic ("cherubim... seraphim... archangels... angels"). We have restored these by ADDING verses 3-5; verse 2 was kept because it is so well known.
