I have recently added a bilingual version of the Carpatho-Rusyn Marian hymn "Spivajme Veselo" to the Pisennik Project. This hymn is for the feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos (September 8/21).

As far as I can tell, this is the first time it has appeared in English. This beautiful hymn is rather popular in the "old country" but less well-known in America.

Chtec, this is a lovely hymn. It occurs to me that by changing the refrain, the hymn could be adapted to the Entrance and the Conception of Anna.

This is a refrain for the Entrance that I composed this morning:

Rejoice today, O full of grace,
a virgin pure, immaculate,
the temple welcomes you,
the heav'nly ark of God.

And this is a refrain for the feast of the Conception

Rejoice today, O blessed Ann,
your barren womb bears fruit for man,
the mother of the lamb,
all holy virgin queen.
