Jesus came from heaven

Boh predvicnyj

This setting of Spas naš narodilsja is taken from the Metropolitan Cantor Institute's Byzantine Catholic Hymnal for Nativity and Theophany (2007). The English translation is by Monsignor William Levkulic.

This hymn is being reviewed as part of the Hymnal Project, and may be dropped from use or heavily modified. See the discussion page.


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 C10 (number 15 in the Christmas Carols section), and in the Hymns section of Monsignor Levkulic's The Divine Liturgy, a Book of Prayer (1978).
