Car nyňi prebohatyj

Anhel Bozij iz nebes

This Christmas hymn is from page 173 of Father Stefan Papp's Duchovňi Pisňi (1969).


This hymn appeared in the L'vov Pisnoslovets (1907) as hymn number 21, with twelve verses. The 1932 collection Kolady (from Užhorod) printed the same text, with a slightly different text.

In 1969, Father Stefan Papp printed a version with music and the four verses given above. Father Papp's text contains quite a few rewordings and other textual differences.
