Little Bird (tagh for the Holy Cross)

Ներքոբերեալ խօսքերը վերցուած են
1900 թ. Վաղարշապատում հրատարակուած
«Ձայնագրեալ տաղարանից»։

I saw a bright bird, incomparable,
On that wooden cross, incomparable,
[Refrain] Who compares to you, the incomparable?
You compare!

He had wings shining like silver, incomparable,
Like the rays of the sun, incomparable.
He had an entreating voice, incomparable,

Like the trumpet of Gabriel, incomparable.
He filled his eyes with tears, incomparable,
Like the morning dew, incomparable.
