When the angel came

Boh predvicnyj

This text above was printed in the Hymns section of Monsignor Levkulic's The Divine Liturgy, a Book of Prayer (1978).

Text and music, with two additional verses for the feast of the Dormition, were included in the Marian Hymnal (1984). The four-verse translation is by Mosnsignor Levkulic and Jerry Jumba.
