exaltation of the cross slavonic hymn
« on: September 24, 2007, 01:41:00 PM »
Could anyone give me the text of the hymn "Before Thy Cross, we bow down and worship, O Master, and Thy Holy Resurrection, we glorify" in Slavonic? I don't speak Russian so it is very difficult for me to find online, though I am sure it is out there.

Thanks!

Here it is transliterated into Latin characters:  Krestu Tvojemu poklanajemsja Vladyko i svatoje voskresinije Tvoje slavhim.  Unfortunately, not speaking Russian myself, I cannot really give you any hints as to absolutely correct pronunciation or accentuation, but I'm sure one a Russian or a Serb is more than willing to help you out.

I would have written it differently due to pronunciation.  Dont worry Scamandrius, you wern't that far off... ;) ;D

Krestu Tvojemu poklanjajemsja Vladyko i svjatoje voskresenije Tvoje slavim. 

that's how I would pronounce it. 
I got nothing.
I forgot the maps
March 27th and May 30th 2010 were my Ordination dates, please forgive everything before that

I know this is an old thread...that said...

Parts of the Slavonic version of this hymn is stuck in my head, as we often sing it at Feasts of the Cross. However, I've never seen this written in Cyrillic font. I'm learning Russian, and find it much easier to figure out the pronunciation in Cyrillic than in a transliteration (which has always confused me). I'm also probably mispronouncing the parts I remember.

I'm having an awful time finding the Slavonic version of this hymn online. If anyone could post the Slavonic version of the hymn here in Russian characters, I would be very appreciative! Thanks! ;D

I can't find it either, but on this one you are in luck, the pronunciation is as it appears in the transliterated form, there are no hard marks or 'schs' to worry about, at least in the more Ukrainianized accent of Slavonic.  Can't help if you are looking for the Russian accented slavonic though...

Kres-tu (accent on second syllable)

Tvoj-e-mu (accent on first syllable)

pok-la-nja-jem-sja (main accent on last syllable)

Vla-dy-ko (accent on second syllable)

i svja-toj-je (accent on 'toj')

vos-kre-se-ni-je (minor accent on 'vos', main accent on 'se' )

Tvo-je (accent on second syllable)

slav-im. (accent on first syllable)

Your wish is my command.  ;)
