Glory to God for All Things

Christos Voskrese – Christ Is Risen!

This delightful youtube video is a favorite of mine. One of our readers and occasional commenter,  Dejan, (without a doubt my favorite Serb) provided the English translation.  The words are from a poem by St. Nikolai Velimirovich who served for a time as the Rector of St. Tikhon’s Seminary – truly one of the great Serbian saints of the modern era.

Translation:

People rejoice, nations hear:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!
Stars dance, mountains sing:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!
Forests murmur, winds hum:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!
Seas bow*, animals roar:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!
Bees swarm, and the birds sing:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!

Angels stand, triple the song:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!
Sky humble yourself, and elevate the earth:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!
Bells chime, and tell to all:
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!
Glory to You God, everything is possible to You,
Christ is risen, and brings the joy!

  12. I love it, CHRIST HAS TRUELY RISEN. I have been though a horrible trial that I do not understand, with demons tormenting me. I have not stoped praying and reaching home to my orthodox roots, in CHRIST WORD. I thank you for these and many glimmers of hope in this darkness. Keep me in your prayers, Mary a sinner who loves GOD deeply. AMEN

    Dear Father,

    With your kind permission I would like to quote something that you wrote in earlier post

    Prayer is a movement towards an authentic life. God is real and from Him alone reality comes. The God who is beyond all things has come down to us and become one of us. He is here, taking the hand of every Adam and Eve and leading them from the grave of their virtual worlds. Our prayer, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” is a petition for God’s Kingdom to come now, and to reign here, in me.

    These words brought such joy to my heart, i cannot explain, portraying what is Inexpressible most adequately. I bow in deep gratitude. Thank you!

    May the joy of Pascha in our hearts inspire us all to try to lead more simple, pure and happy life.

    Христос Васкрсе!

  19. Dejan,

    Voistinu Voskrese!

  20. Crandaddy says:

    God bless you, Father!

    I cannot remember another Easter song that brought such joy to my heart!

    God bless you also, Dejan, for translating these delightful words!

    CHRISTOS VOSKRESE!

    CHRISTOS ANESTI!

    CHRIST IS RISEN!

    Let all creation rejoice in the rising to life of Him who makes all things new!
    And behold: He makes all things new

    I love these words, I think Blessed Nickolai is so close to my heart. I have allways loved His writtings and they have drawn me close to GOD. pray for me, and my little family, we have had many troubles and things I do not understand, but GOD does, and HE Is RISEN, so let the joy begin. Soon I pray OH HOLY ONE blessed be all of THY HOLY NAMES. Mary
