1
Nova radist' stala,
yaka ne buvala:
Nad vertepom zvizda yasna
Svitlom zasiyala.

2
De Khristos rodihvsya,
Z divih voplotihvsya.
Yak cholovik pelanamih
Uboho povihvsya.

3
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.

1
Joy on earth now appearing.
Wondrous light to us nearing.
Brightly beaming o'er the manger
Shines the Star of Bethlehem.

2
Holy Christ, born in glory,
Virgin born, son of Mary,
Lying lowly in a manger,
See the babe of Bethlehem.

3
Angels lift up their voices:
Gloria in excelsis!
From the heavens to the manger,
Peace is born in Bethlehem.
