Give Thanks…for He is Good

A blessed Thanksgiving to everyone.

May we never forget the goodness of God. 

Let us always remember that He is our Father, and we are His children.

That He is our  Shepherd.  And we are His sheep.

That He is good.  And He loves all mankind.

 

 

Give thanks with this beautiful piece of music , Oce Nas – “Our Father” – sung in Old Church Slavonic  by Orthodox vocalist Divna Ljubojevic 

Translation

Our Father, who art in the heavens,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.

Priest.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
now and ever and unto the ages of ages.

All
Amen.

Here are the lyrics in old Church Slavonic developed by Sts. Cyril and Methodius.  Church Slavonic is the fourth official world language after Hebrew, Latin and Greek.   From Slavonic we have the Christian liturgy, Bible translations, and many hymns of the Church.

Отче наш, Иже еси на Небесех,
да святится имя Твое,
да приидет царствие Твое,
да будет воля Твоя,
яко на небеси и на земли.
Хлеб нащ насущный даждь нам днес
и остави нам долги наша,
якоже и мы оставляем
должником нашим,
и не введи нас во искушение,
но избави нас от лукаваго.

Glory to God for all things!
