Anhel Bozij iz nebes

This Christmas hymn is from page 156 of Father Stefan Papp's Duchovňi Pisňi (1969).

Sources

This hymn does not appear in the Užhorod Pisennik (1913), but was included in the 1932 Greek Catholic collection, Kolady, with four verses:

1. Anhel Božij so nebes, - radosf nam zviščaje dnes: - čto u Viflejemi Boh voplotilsja, - tam u vertepu On pojavilsja - bidnym pastucham.

2. Tož choďme u Viflejem, - hdi u jaslach Božij Syn narodilsja z Divy Marii, - neporočnoj lelii, na spasenie nam.

3. Tam otdajme česť Jemu - zaspivajme pisň novu: Slava vo vyšnich vičnomu Bohu - Otcu i Synu, Duchu svjatomu - a na zemli mir.

4. O Diťatko Spase naš, - hľaň laskavo dnes na nas. - Osvobodi nas z ťažkoj nevoli, - daj dočekati lipšoj doli, - Roždestvom tvojim.

In 1969, Father Stefan Papp printed a version with music and three verses (Duchovňi Pisňi, page 156); verses 1 and 2 contain significant textual differences, and verse 4 was omitted.
