New Year's carols - St. Basil's Carol in Greek lyrics

St. Basil's Carol St. Basil's Carol

 

It is the first day of the year

Rosemary trees stand tall and near

We start, we start our year congenial

in our ho..., in our holy, white cathedral.

 

In the beginning, Christ came down.

The Holy Spiritual One.

On earth, on earth He walked amid us.

To our hearts, to our hearts great joy He bid us.

 

From Caesarea, Basil came 

and never once annouced his name.

"Are you, are you this house's matron? 

May I be, may I be your humble patron?"

 

He's holding an icon and paper,

Sweet bread,

Paper and inkwell.

See the lad here.

 

The ink was writing,

Telling about his fortune.

And the paper spoke,

My dear, holy St. Basil.

 

St. Basil's Carol in Greek Lyrics

 

Αρχιμηνιά κι αρχιχρονιά,

Archiminia ki'Archichronia 

 

ψηλή μου δενδρολιβανιά,

psili mou dendro livania,

 

κι αρχή  κι αρχή καλός μας χρόνος,

ki'archi, ki'archi kalos mas chronos 

 

εκκλησιά με τ’ άγιο θρόνο.

ekklisia, ekklisia me t'ayio thronos.

 

Αρχή που βγήκε ο Χριστός,

Archi pou vghike o Christos, 

 

άγιος και πνευματικός,

ayios ke Pnevmatikos,

 

στη γη στη γη να περπατήσει,

sti yi, sti yi na perpatisi 

 

και να μας και να μας καλοκαρδίσει.

ke na mas, ke na mas kalokardhisi.

 

Άγιος Βασίλης έρχεται,

Ayios Vasilis erchete 

 

και δεν μας καταδέχετε,

kai den mas katadechete 

 

από  από την Καισαρεία,

apo, apo tin Ke sareia, 

 

σ’ εισ’ αρχο σ’ εισ’ αρχόντισσα κυρία.

si' se'archon, si' se'archondissa kyria.

 

Βαστάει εικόνα και χαρτί,

Vasta' ikona ke charti, 

 

ζαχαροκάντιο ζυμωτή,

zacharokandio  zimoti

 

χαρτί χαρτί και καλαμάρι,

xarti xarti ke kalamari

 

δες και με δες και με το παλικάρι.

des ke me des ke me to palikari.



Το καλαμάρι έγραφε,

To kalamari egraphe,

 

τη μοίρα μου την έγραφε,

th moira tou thn egraphe,

 

και το και το χαρτί ομίλει,

ke to, ke to charti omili, Aye mou, aye mou kale Vasili.

 

Άγιέ μου καλέ Βασίλη.

Aye mou, aye mou kale Vasili.
