Balai of Qenneshrin on the Cross


Leap for joy and rejoice, Church,
and sing praise
to the power of the cross,
for it is carrying your foundation
so that the evil one could not
conceal your truth.
ܕܘܽܨ ܘܰܚܕܺܝ ܥܺܕ̱ܬܳܐ.
ܘܰܙܡܰܪܝ ܬܶܫܒܘܽܚܬܳܐ.
ܠܚܰܝܠܶܗ ܕܰܨܠܺܝܒܳܐ.
ܕܗܘܽ ܛܥܺܝܢ ܫܶܬܶܣܰܝܟ̈ܝ.
ܕܠܳܐ ܡܶܬܡܨܶܐ ܒܺܝܫܳܐ.
ܢܚܰܦܶܐ ܠܰܫܪܳܪܶܟܝ܀
In Your Cross, I take
refuge, our Savior.
By its wings, protect me
from the evil one and his power.
May Your Cross, our Savior,
be for us a bulwark
night and day,
and at all times.
ܒܰܨܠܺܝܒܳܟ ܐܶܚܕܶܬ.
ܓܰܘܣܳܐ ܦܳܪܘܽܩܰܢ.
ܒ̈ܟܶܢܦܰܘܗ̱ܝ ܣܰܬܰܪܰܝܢܝ.
ܡܶܢ ܒܺܝܫܳܐ ܘܚܰܝܠܶܗ.
ܨܠܺܝܒܳܟ ܦܳܪܘܽܩܰܢ.
ܫܘܽܪܳܐ ܢܶܗܘܶܐ ܠܰܢ.
ܒܠܺܠܝܳܐ ܘܒܺܐܝܡܳܡܳܐ.
ܘܰܒܟܽܠ ܥܶܕܳܢ̈ܺܝܢ܀
May your Cross, Lord,
become a bulwark and a house of refuge
for the souls who are invoking
Your Holy name.
We are calling you,
Messiah, our Savior.
Have mercy on our lives
and do not disregard us.
ܨܠܺܝܒܳܟ ܡܳܪܝ ܢܶܗܘܶܐ.
ܫܘܽܪܳܐ ܘܒܶܝܬܓܰܘܣܳܐ.
ܠܢܰܦ̈ܫܳܬܳܐ ܕܩܳܪ̈ܶܝܢ.
ܠܰܫܡܳܟ ܩܰܕܺܝܫܳܐ.
ܠܳܟ ܗܘܽ ܩܳܪܶܝܢܰܢ.
ܡܫܺܝܚܳܐ ܦܳܪܘܽܩܰܢ.
ܪܰܚܶܡ ܥܰܠ ܚ̈ܰܝܰܝܢ.
ܘܠܳܐ ܬܶܗܡܶܐ ܡܶܢܰܢ܀
Praise is due to Your justice,
eternal Father.
Adoration is due to Your Cross,
merciful Child.
Thanksgiving is due to Your mercy,
compassionate Spirit.
ܫܘܽܒܚܳܐ ܠܟܺܐܢܘܽܬܳܟ.
ܐܰܒܳܐ ܡܬܘܽܡܳܝܳܐ.
ܘܣܶܓܕܬܳܐ ܠܰܨܠܺܝܒܳܟ.
ܝܰܠܕܳܐ ܡܪܰܚܡܳܢܳܐ.
ܬܰܘܕܺܝ ܠܰܚܢܳܢܳܟ.
ܪܘܽܚܳܐ ܡܪܰܚܦܳܢܳܐ܀
