The Heart Of Reverent Worship


Fragrant grasses, greening porches,
Incense wafts among the birches,
 Departed shades have come alive
And wing towards the earthly shores.
 Again the vision of heavenly tongues
Is flaming with unfading glory,
 And fiery-chorded angelic choirs
Thunder from clear skies above.
 Hosts of saints, together with us,
Sing Trisagion to the Lord;
 Unearthly beings unearthly songs
Do sing and carry our souls beyond.
 Come let us bow down to the ground
And glorify the Triune God,
 Be hallowed by tri-shining fire,
 Ascend the mountain of the Lord.
 The Trinity now shows the world
Its fiery and sacred visage.
 The earth does blossom forth with flowers;
Of God do all tongues verily speak.
 Believe thou that our earthly prison
Is permeated to its depth
 By the Thrice-holy and Tri-shining:
Eternal Father, and Spirit, and Son.
V. Utrenev, The Holy Trinity
Translated By Natalia Sheniloff
heavenly hymns in church slavonic


  1. We are made to become worshippers of this living God.
    I think that many believers have experienced Heaven in their worship even they are living in earthy world.The author of this poem also might do.

    Thank you for introducing slavonic hymns.I noticed they sing Greek Hymn Xristos anesti(33.19~).


  2. Dearest Sanae, thank you for your beautiful and insightful comment. Yes, I also realized that they sang Xristos Anesti in this album.And you know, Sanae, when I sing this hymn in my heart with faith, He gives me power of resurrection! And I realized that this hymn is not just for Easter but for every day Christian life, because the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ can be experienced in us daily (especially when we are in trials and difficulties.) with love, Kinuko

  3. Yes,I also love this hymn and try to sing sometimes.Thank you for having introduced how to read the Greek lylics and translation of this hymn on your Japanese blog.

    You are right.Death and resurrection with Jesus.We experience them again and again especially in trials of our daily lives.May God bless all our brethren,who love Jesus Christ.Someday we can meet in Heaven,I hope.


    PS If you are all right,please introduce English translation of the song also on this blog!

    1. Dear Sanae, good morning, thank you for your encouragement. Yes,I'd like to do that! Kinuko
