Christ Is Born! The Angels Sing!

A Serbian Christmas Song – lyrics by St. Nikolai Velimirovich

Andjeli Pevaju

Noć prekrasna i noć tija,
nad pećinom zvezda sija,
u pećini mati spi,
nad Isusom andjel bdi.

Andjeli pevaju,
pastiri sviraju,
andjeli pevaju
mudraci javljaju:
Što narodi čekaše,
što proroci rekoše,
evo sad se u svet javi,
u svet javi i objavi:
Rodi nam se Hristos Spas
za spasenje sviju nas.
Aliluja, aliluja,
Gospodi pomiluj!

(deep voice) no matter what you are doing, spin threads for heaven!

Angels Sing  (lyrics)

the night so grand and placid,
a star shining over the cave,
the mother sleeping in the cave,
the angel keeping watch over Jesus.

the angels are singing,
the sheperds are fluting,
the angels are singing,
the wise bring it forth:
what the nations awaited,
what the prophets had said,
here and now it is announced,

it is announced and brought forth:
Christ, our Redeemer is born!
for the Salvation of us all.
halleluya, halleluya,
Lord, have mercy!

Joy, Soul, Passion, Honor, Jesus, Faith, Hope, Salvation, Peace, Repentance, the Lord, Calmness, Love, Charity, Harmony…

(addendum) God’s peace! Christ is born! Truly, He is born!… let’s renew ourselves, let’s lift up the pillars!


  1. I waked into our temple this morning with Bishop Basil standing in his throne, the chanters and choir singing and my heart leaped for joy and I said: “This is Christmas” Standing there I began to pray for all the folks who could not be in their local Temple to celebrate with Joy the Birth of our Lord and Savior.

  2. The Christmas hymns sound so much more full in the Slavonic languages than in English. There is a melodic gentleness and joy in them them that the English does not have even though I cannot understand the words.

  3. I love that the backdrop of this video is a busy urban bustling city • for even Bethlehem was a city where Christ was born !

    Christ is born! Glorify Him!! Wishing you and your loved ones every blessing Fr Stephen.

  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family Father! Thank you for sharing this beautiful hymn with us!

  5. Christ is born! Glorify Him! There is so much beauty in the world! Merry Christmas Father!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful Christmas song. Angels surely are singing! Merry Christmas
