May Orthodoxy become our orthopraxis

Could any of our OO brothers and sisters help with translating the hymn "Jananee Parishudha" into English?


Many people in America would be very blessed to know the words to such a beautiful song! 
(I would love to be able to sing it myself) Smiley

Thanks in advance,

The song you have given is from the worship at 6th hour(noon) and it is Bovotho of Mor Balai . The song is of 6 stanzas. In the recoding two stanzas are sung in Malayalam (Malayalam in this recording ends with words 'Athmavinu Kotta'). It seems the rest is in Syriac and hope that what is sung in Syriac  is the remaining stanzas.  I am giving the translation( from indian orthodox engish translations)  for all full 6 stanzas.

                  Bovootho of Mar Balai


H1.         Absolve us O Lord, and our departed

            By entreaties of Thy mother and saints

H2.        Mary ís memory be a great blessing

           And her prayers be a fortress for our souls

H3.        Prophets, Apostles, Martyrs and righteous

           Beseech and beg for mercy for us all

H4.        Sprinkle Lord Thy dew of gladness upon

           Father and brethren, who sleep in Thy hope

H5.        Praise to thee who extol remembrance of

           Holy Mother and saints, and raises the dead.

H6.        Absolve us O Lord, and our departed

           By entreaties of Thy mother and saints

Seraphim,
It might interest you that the person who has sung the audio clip of Jananee Parishudha, Fr. Saji Thomas has been elected to the Episcopate by the Malankara Syriac Orthodox Synod. H.B Baselious Thomas I will be ordaining Fr. Saji as a Bishop on Jan 4th, Monday at St. Athanasius Cathedral, Puthencuriz .  Here is the video of Fr. Saji singing Jananee Parishudha .. (at 1:04)

Looks like he's singing to an audience of adoring women. Where are the men?

I was wondering about the same, when I saw the video. My conclusion was that, it possibly must be a women's retreat.

Or perhaps it could be a liturgy on a weekday when the men are at work.  I was wondering the same thing.
