Lyrics

Oy cherez pole, cherez shyroke,
Svyatyy vechor, cherez shyroke.

Oy tudoyu yshla Bozhaya Maty,
Svyatyy vechor, Bozhaya Maty.

Bozha Maty Syna shukaty,
Svyatyy vechor, Syna shukaty.

Zustrila vona try kolyadnyky,
Svyatyy vechor, try kolyadnyky.

– Oy dobryy vechor, try kolyadnychky,
Svyatyy vechor, try kolyadnyky.

Chy ne bachyly Synon'ka moho,
Svyatyy vechor, Synon'ka moho.

Synon'ka moho, a Boha svoho,
Svyatyy vechor, a Boha svoho.

Oy odyn kazhe, shcho ya ne bachyv.
Svyatyy vechor, shcho ya y ne bachyv.

A druhyy kazhe, shcho ya ne chuvav,
Svyatyy vechor, shcho ya ne chuvav.

A tretiy kazhe, shcho ya sam tam buv,
Svyatyy vechor, shcho ya sam tam buv.

Pana-hospodara y u kontsi stola,
Svyatyy vechor, y u kontsi stola.

Kutyetsu dovbe, shche y pshenychnuyu,
Svyatyy vechor, shche y pshenychnuyu

A sytetsoyu* da y polyvaye,
Svyatyy vechor, da y polyvaye.

Oy day zhe, synku, rays'kiyi klyuchi,
Svyatyy vechor, rays'kiyi klyuchi.

Treba vypustyt' nevynny dushi,
Svyatyy vechor, nevynny dushi.

Odneyi dushi da y ne vypustyu,
Svyatyy vechor, da y ne vypusty.

Bo taya dusha da y zohrishyla,
Svyatyy vechor, da y zohrishyla.

U nedilen'ku rano snidala,
Svyatyy vechor, rano snidala.

A v suboton'ku rano zapila,
Svyatoy vechor, rano zapila.

Bat'ka y materi da y znevazhyla,
Svyatyy vechor, da y znevazhyla.

*sytetsa – tepla voda, rozbavlena medom.
