The text of this Passion hymn is from Monsignor William Levkulic (see below), who also published an English setting, Come now all you faithful.


This hymn was included in the Užhorod Pisennik (1913) as hymn number 83. It was not divided into stanzas, but consisted of 132 lines of text - if sung to thje above melody or a similar one, this would make for thirty-four (!) verses.

Text and music were published in Monsignor Levkulic's Hymns of the Great Fast, on page 21, with the three verses given above. Many of the lines are identical to ones given in the 1913 publication, but are ordered differently.

The same hymn, with an additional final verse. was printed in Father Stefan Papp's Duchovňi Pisňi (1969), on page 104. Except for the extra verse, the text is generally similar to that given by Monsignor Levkulic.
