Beautiful, honoring the Mother of God is an honor by itself and a great blessing for all! if you notice at the bottom of the icon on the left and right side there used to be bigger circles that look like bracelets, on them there were two Ethiopian gold crosses, so I am pretty sure there were Ethiopians visiting and venerating the icon before as well, but I know from experience as far as Ethiopian Orthodox are concerned, hold an event in the Name of the Most Holy Theotokos and they are living close by, then they will count themselves invited!
Here is the translation of what they were singing.
The first mezmur ..
tenageru dinq sirawinem meskiru/2x/--- Tell and give testimony of His wondrous works,
Te’amirun le alem negeru/2x/ ---- proclaim to the world, His Miraculous deeds,
dinq sirawin meskiru/--- give your testimony of His wondrous works
The second mezmur is taken from the song of mosses the great prophet and his sister Mary the prophetess after Israel saw the Lord’s Mighty hand and things he did…
Enamseginew/2x/ Egziabeheren / Let us sing to God in thanksgiving
Misgun new yetemesegene/2x/For he is glorious and is greatly glorified.
The Third mezmur
Des yibelen/2x/ amlak ale mehalachin / let us rejoice /2x/ For God is in our midst,
Min yikefel lezih sirah genana new amlak kibrih/ how can we repay you for this deed you have done for us, great is your glory our God.
Hatiyatihen yitagesihal/ He is patient of your sin
Becherent amlak yayihal/ He look upon you with mercy
Dingil maryam tiseleyalech / and the Virgin Mary Prays
Hatoun sawe marew iyalech / saying ‘ Forgive the sinner’
Bedingil kibir enenoralen/ by the favor she has before Him
Betsinu fiqr and iyaderegen/we continue to live united in His unshakable love
selam to all
