O Bože moj milostivyj

Boh predvicnyj

This Lenten hymn is from 112-113 of Father Stefan Papp's Duchovňi Pisňi (1969). Be careful when singing the music here; the music is only given once (marked with a repeat) for the third and fourth lines of the verse.

The first and third verses, along with an English translation (O my God, you are so merciful) were printed in Monsignor William Levkulic's collection, Hymns for Great Lent.


This hymn was included in the Užhorod Pisennik (1913) as hymn number 79, with 33 (!) verses

In 1969, Father Stefan Papp printed the version with music and fifteen verses given above; perhaps 2/3 of the verses in this version are identical or similar to verses in the Pisennik, while about 1/3 come from some other source.
