Psalm of the Readings – Consecration and Renewal of the Church (Maronite Divine Liturgy)


Sister Natalie Sayde Salameh and Sister Therese Maria of the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light translated this Hymn 

Behold priests and deacons with the excellent scent of their censers encircle the Altar of Reconciliation, and the Holy Spirit alights on it. ܗܳܐ ܟܳܗ̈ܢܶܐ ܘܰܡܫܰܡ̈ܫܳܢܶܐ ܆ ܒܥܶܛܪܳܐ ܫܒܺܝܚܳܐ  ܕܦܺܝܪ̈ܡܰܝܗܘܽܢ ܆ ܟܪܺܝܟܺܝܢ ܠܡܰܕܒܰܚ ܬܰܪܥܘܽܬܳܐ ܆ ܘܪܘܽܚܳܐ ܕܩܘܽܕܫܳܐ ܡܪܰܚܦܳܐ ܥܠܰܘܗ̱ܝ ܀
Listen to this all nations, “Priests encircle the Altar.” Give heed inhabitants of the earth, “The Holy Spirit alights on it.” ܫܡܰܥܘ ܗܳܕܶܐ ܟܽܠܟܘܽܢ ܥܰܡ̱ܡ̈ܶܐ ܆ ܕܟܳܗ̈ܢܶܐ ܟܪܺܝܟܺܝܢ ܠܶܗ ܠܡܰܕܒܚܳܐ ܆ ܘܨܘܽܬܘ ܟܽܠܟܽܘܢ ܝܳܬܒܰܝ ܐܰܪܥܳܐ ܆ ܕܪܘܽܚܳܐ ܕܩܘܽܕܫܳܐ ܡܪܰܚܦܳܐ ܥܠܰܘܗ̱ܝ ܀
On the rock of faith, our Lord built the Holy Church; on Simon, He laid down her foundations, and Paul finished her structure. ܥܰܠ ܫܘܽܥܳܐ ܕܗܰܝܡܳܢܘܽܬܳܐ ܆ ܒܢܳܐ ܡܳܪܰܢ ܠܥܺܕܰܬ ܩܘܽܕܫܳܐ ܆ ܘܥܰܠ ܫܶܡܥܘܽܢ ܣܳܡ ܫܶܬܶܣܶܝܗ̇ ܆ ܘܦܰܘܠܳܘܣ ܫܰܟܠܶܠ ܒܶܢܝܳܢܳܗ̇ ܀
