Listen to a recording by Father Michael Sopoliga

This hymn is frequently sung before or after services on the weekdays of the Great Fast. The text is that of Monsignor William Levkulic (see below), who also published an English setting, Beneath your cross I stand.


The text was published in the The Divine Liturgy (1978) by Monsignor Levkulic, as hymn number 43 in the Lenten Hymns section, and in Monsignor Levkulic's Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts (on page 59)

Text and music were included in Monsignor Levkulic's Hymns of the Great Fast (on page 13).

(Can anyone document its history earlier than that?)
