Praying with Balai of Qenneshrin


Your loving-kindness shall be sad
upon seeing my stains,
yet may it petition Your justice
lest I be cast out altogether.
ܬܶܟܪܶܐ ܠܛܰܝܒܘܽܬܳܟ.
ܡܳܐ ܕܚܳܙܝܳܐ ܠܟ̈ܘܽܬܡܳܬܝ.
ܘܬܰܦܺܝܣ ܠܟܺܐܢܘܽܬܳܟ.
ܕܠܳܐ ܐܶܫܬܕܶܐ ܠܰܓܡܳܪ܀
Although there are no deeds,
save me because of my faith.
Save me because of one thing alone,
because of Your loving-kindness.
ܘܐܳܦܶܢ ܥ̈ܒܳܕܶܐ ܠܰܝܬ.
ܐܰܚܳܢܝ ܒܗܰܝܡܳܢܘܽܬܳܝ.
ܒܰܚܕܳܐ ܚܕܳܐ ܒܰܠܚܘܽܕ.
ܐܰܚܳܢܝ ܒܛܰܝܒܘܽܬܳܟ܀
Lift me up, the lowest of all,
and make the weakest of all to understand.
Let your compassion, Lord, gush forth
toward me because of Your loving-kindness.
ܘܥܰܠܳܢܝ ܒܨܺܝܪ ܡܶܢ ܟܽܠ.
ܘܣܰܟܶܠ ܡܚܺܝܠ ܡܶܢ ܟܽܠ.
ܢܶܫܦܰܥ ܚܢܳܢܳܟ ܡܳܪܝ.
ܨܶܐܕܰܝ ܒܛܰܝܒܘܽܬܳܟ܀
Glory be to You, Christ,
the hope, for Whom
all sinners have waited
and to Whom they pray.
ܠܳܟ ܫܘܽܒܚܳܐ ܡܫܺܝܚܳܐ.
ܣܰܒܪܳܐ ܕܠܶܗ ܣܰܟܺܝܘ.
ܟܽܠܗܘܽܢ ܚ̈ܰܛܳܝܶܐ.
ܕܠܶܗ ܗܘܽ ܡܶܬܟܰܫܦܺܝܢ܀
