High in the sky
High in the sky a star is aglow,
casting bright beauty here below.
A wave of salvation comes with the dawn:
born of a virgin is the Son.
Heaven and earth sing Aleluia!
Jesus is born! Gloria!
Lying on the straw in a poor cattle stall
rests our dear Lord, the king of all.
The people rush in and kneel on the floor,
greeting the child whom they adore.

Greetings we bring you, Christ new-born
Yours is the glory this joyful dawn.
Bless us with love and with you we'll stay
No ill can ever force us away

words by Sheena Phillips, based on Vladimir Morozov's translation. The original Ukrainian words are included in the score.
