This hymn was published in the L'vov Pisnoslovets (1907) as the second hymn for Christmas, with five verses. A similar text appeared in the UĆŸhorod Pisennik (1913) as hymn number 48, with six verses. This latter version was reprinted in Latin letters in the 1932 Greek Catholic collection, Kolady.

In 1969, Father Papp printed the music and four verses above; the text differs somewhat from that in the earlier versions. Four verses (somewhat different text) appeared on page 151 of Father Stefan Papp's Duchovňi Pisňi (1969).
