This hymn was included in the UĆŸhorod Pisennik (1913) as the second hymn for Theophany (number 56 in that collection, on page 117). Seven verses were given.

In 1969, Father Stefan Papp printed four verses of this hymn (Duchovňi Pisňi, page 19). The text is slightly different from that in the Pisennik. No music was provided; instead, there was a pointer to the Marian tune for the melody,

In 1978, Father William Levkulic published the first two verses of the Papp translation in the Hymns section of The Divine Liturgy, a Book of Prayer (1978), along with a loose 2-verse English translation.
