Beautiful, Triumphant Song About Christianity Sung by Slavs

Faith of the simple, Faith of the nobles, Our Faith is blessed. . . . This tremendous song was written by St. Nikolai Velimirovic, and it is performed beautifully in both of these music videos.

St. Nicholai Velimiriovic was a genius. Not only did he write the incredible Prologue of Ohrid, he also composed a number of beautiful Orthodox songs, such as Christos Voskrese (Christ is Risen), which has become quite popular. He also wrote this beautiful song, "Our Faith", which we are happy to share here. The original Serbian Lyrics for the song are available online. The Russian and English translations of the lyrics are available below.


Video #1:

The first video includes many stunning pictures of the Holy Trinity Lavra in Sergeiv Posad, Russia. I have been to this monastery and it is truly unforgettable. The second video takes place in Serbia, at an Orthodox Church which had nearly been destroyed in the Second World War. Where the video was being filmed, the sign of the cross appeared in the sky, and the people gratefully received this sign as a blessing from God.

ENGLISH LYRICS (translated)

Faith in God shines forth,
Holy princes of our ancestors.
Faith is eternal, Faith is glorious,
Our faith is Orthodox!

Faith of the simple, Faith of the nobles,
Our faith is blessed.
Faith is eternal, faith is glorious,
Our faith is Orthodox!

In Faith, the soul reaches for the light.
Nothing better than this Faith exists.
Faith eternal, Faith glorious,
Our faith is Orthodox!

The Russian people were enlightened,
Sacred Russia was baptized.
Faith is eternal, Faith is glorious,
Our Faith is Orthodox!

True Faith is eternal,
Our faith is infinite.
This glorious Faith is, and ever shall be,
Our Faith is Orthodox!

Faith is eternal, Faith is glorious,
Our faith is Orthodox!
 

RUSSIAN LYRICS

Вера в Боге просиявших,
Святых князей-предков наших.
Вера вечна, вера славна,
Наша вера Православна!

Вера простых, вера знатных,
Вера наша благодатна
Вера вечна, вера славна,
Наша вера Православна!

В ней душа стремится к свету.
Лучше этой веры нету.
Веры вечной, веры славной,
Нашей веры Православной!

Народ Русский просветила,
Святой Русью окрестила.
Вера вечна, вера славна,
Наша вера Православна! 

Вера истинная – вечна,
Наша вера бесконечна.
Есть и будет вера славна,
Наша вера Православна!

Вера вечна, вера славна,
Наша вера Православна!

The Serbian Lyrics for the second video are available online.
