Nova radist' stala,
yaka ne buvala:
Nad vertepom zvizda yasna
Svitlom zasiyala.

De Khristos rodihvsya,
Z divih voplotihvsya.
Yak cholovik pelanamih
Uboho povihvsya.

Anhelih spivayut':
"Slava" voshlihchayut',
Na nebesakh i na zemli
Mihr pro povi dayut.

Three verses freely translated by Charles H. Giffen
from the Ukrainian carol Nova radist' stala.

Joy on earth now appearing.
Wondrous light to us nearing.
Brightly beaming o'er the manger
Shines the Star of Bethlehem.

Holy Christ, born in glory,
Virgin born, son of Mary,
Lying lowly in a manger,
See the babe of Bethlehem.

Angels lift up their voices:
Gloria in excelsis!
From the heavens to the manger,
Peace is born in Bethlehem.
