Pokla┼łajusja, moj Christe

Boh predvicnyj

This Lenten hymn in honor of the five wounds of Christ is from 117 of Father Stefan Papp's Duchovňi Pisňi (1969); no author is named.

The same five verses, along with an English translation (We venerate, O Christ) were printed in Monsignor William Levkulic's collection, Hymns for Great Lent. In this collection, the hymn is credited to Father I. Dutsko (presumably the same as the author of another hymn in the same collection, L'udi moji, l'udi). The English version condenses the two verses in honor of the wounds in our Lord's hands into a single verse; and likewise with the wounds in His feet.
