O, ce veste minunată is a Christmas carol, sung primarily in Romanian-speaking communities and countries. Like many other traditional songs, there are umpteen versions of it. E.g. some have "Viflaim" for Bethlehem, some have "S-a nascut Mesia" (The Messiah was born). It is attributed to Dumitru Kiriac-Georgescu (1866-1928) who founded the Romanian traditional music.

Romanian[edit]

O, ce veste minunată!
În Betleem ni s-arată.
Astăzi s-a născut cel făr' de-nceput,
Cum au spus prorocii.

Că la Betleem Maria,
Săvârşind călătoria
Într-un mic sălaş, lângă-acel oraş,
A născut pe Mesia.

Pe Fiul în al Său nume,
Tatăl l-a trimis în lume.
Să se nască, şi să crească,
Să ne mântuiască.

Literal English[edit]

O what great news!
Is shown to us in Bethlehem!
Today has been born, the One without a beginning,
As the Prophets foretold!

That in Bethlehem Mary,
Having completed the trip,
In a little space, near that town,
She bore the Messiah

His Son in God's Own Name,
The Father has sent into the world!
To be born and to grow,
To save us all!
