This hymn to the Holy Spirit can be sung on Pentecost, and throughout the liturgical year; it is basically a re-telling in verse of the liturgical prayer, Heavenly King, Comforter.

For the Slavonic version, see Carju nebesnyj, Bože mohučij.


Fr. William Levkulic printed English and Slavonic versions (text only) on page 152 of his The Divine Liturgy: A Book of Prayer (1978), where this hymn appears as number 7 in the collection of Eucharistic hymns (!).
