Season of Great Lent: Fourth Sunday of Great Lent [The Parable of the Prodigal Son] – (Maronite Divine Liturgy)

The Prodigal Son

Syriac Melody: ܪܰܡܪܶܡܰܝܢܝ
The foolishness of the younger brother [see Lk 15:11-32] is insignificant when compared to (literally, smaller than) the love of the father. His father saw him while he was [still] far away, then he fell on his neck [that is, embraced him affectionately] and kissed him.ܣܰܟܠܘܽܬܳܐ ܕܰܒܪܳܐ ܙܥܘܽܪܳܐ ܆ ܙܥܘܽܪܳܐ ܗ̱ܝ ܡܶܢ ܚܘܽܒܳܐ ܕܰܐܒܳܐ ܆ ܚܙܳܝܗ̱ܝ ܐܰܒܘܽܗ̱ܝ ܥܰܕ ܗ̱ܘܽ ܪܰܚܺܝܩ ܆ ܘܰܢܦܰܠ ܥܰܠ ܨܰܘܪܶܗ ܘܢܰܫܩܶܗ ܀
The younger brother said to his father, “I have sinned against heaven and against you. Father, my heart reproves me, but you are greater than my heart.”ܐܶܡܰܪ ܒܪܳܐ ܙܥܘܽܪܳܐ ܠܰܐܒܘܽܗ̱ܝ ܆ ܚܛܺܝܬ ܒܰܫ̈ܡܰܝܳܐ ܘܰܩܕܳܡܰܝܟ ܆ ܐܰܒܳܐ ܕܺܝܠܝ ܒܳܣܰܪ ܠܺܝ ܠܶܒܝ ܆ ܐܰܢ̱ܬ ܕܶܝܢ ܪܰܒ ܡܶܢ ܠܶܒܳܐ ܕܺܝܠܝ ܀
God, You accepted, in Your mercies, the offering of the just of old, accept, in Your mercies, our offering and be pleased with our prayers.ܐܰܠܳܗܳܐ ܕܩܰܒܶܠ ܒܪ̈ܰܚܡܰܘܗ̱ܝ ܆ ܩܘܽܪܒܳܢܳܐ ܕܟܺܐܢ̈ܶܐ ܩܰܕܡ̈ܶܐ ܆ ܩܰܒܶܠ ܒܪ̈ܰܚܡܰܝܟ ܩܘܽܪܒܳܢܰܢ ܆ ܘܶܐܬܪܰܥܳܐ ܒܰܨ̈ܠܰܘܳܬܰܢ ܀

  1. Shlomo,

    There is a small error in the first part.

    Instead of “ kad ” you wrote “ H’ad ”

    Thanks for the wonderful work!

    Shlome sagiye,
