Advent IV: Salvation is Created

Luke 1:34-35 (ESV)

And Mary said to the angel,
“How will this be, since I am a virgin?”

And the angel answered her,
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
and the power of the Most High
will overshadow you;
therefore the child to be born
will be called holy—the Son of God.

Salvation is Created
Pavel Chesnokov


sodélal yesí posredé ziemlí,
Bózhe. Allilúiya.

coдeлaл еси посреде земли,
Боже. Аллилуия.


Salvation is created
in the midst of the earth.
O God, Our God, Alleluia.

Special thanks to Cheryl @ a round unvarnish'd tale for finding this recording, not to mention the lyrics in Russian, and posting them here.
