Orthodox paraliturgical songs - recordings and lyrics
« on: July 28, 2020, 08:27:42 AM »
There have been topics there and over containing paraliturgical songs, above all Christmas ones, also some in Byzantine secular music thread. But I think it would be nice to share more of them, as there exist in many languages and they're sung during pilgrimages, Communion, after services, sometimes family meetings and other occassions. Some of them have been written by saints, e.g many Serbian ones by st. bishop Nicholas (Velimirović).

I think, to not get into chaos, it would be: 1 post for one song.

I'll start with Serbian one ОД ОГЊЕНИХ ЈЕЗИКА РОЂЕНА (out of the fire tongues being born) by bishop of Zvornik and Tuzla Photios:

Помени Господе слугу свога недостојнога,
једина нада ми је љубав Твоја, љубав Твоја неизмерна

Изведи ме данас из ада сопственога,
када је од Огњених језика, рођена Црква Твоја

Помени Господе слугу свога молитвама светих отаца,
Порфирија сасуда љубави, Нектарија чудотворца

Помени ме а немаш зашто, јер сам прах и пепео, па чак и не постојим ако страха Твога немам у себи
Помени ме зато молитвама отаца наших, свих цветова Цркве твоје, у којима Ти обитаваш

Помени Господе слугу свога, молитвама светих отаца и матера наших богоносних, свих цветова Цркве Твоје
и матера наших богоносних, свих цветова Цркве Твоје


Translation:
Remember, O Lord, Your servant unworthy;
my only hope is Your love, Your immeasurable love

Take me out today of my own hell,
when Your Church was born of the Tongues of Fire

Remember the Lord your servant with the prayers of the Holy Fathers,
Porphiriosa vessel of love, Nectarios a miracle worker

Remember me and you have no reason, because I am dust and ashes, a
nd I don't even exist if I don't have Your fear in me
Therefore, remember me with the prayers of our Fathers,
of all the flowers of your Church, in which You dwell

Remember, Lord, your servant, with the prayers of the holy Fathers and Mothers of our God-bearing,
all the flowers of Your Church

Something from Jordan in Arabic "Orthodoxy": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZM-N1qeG2kM

Orthodoxy you are the spring of deep and great faith
You are the light of God on Earth and prayer and worship
We are in Your yards with dewy green flowers
We are moons at the port of the living Christ the Saviour of the humanity
We are driven by love, good and purity and virtue
And peace and goodness and harmony and civilization
We create space for all people light and good news [Gospel]
And we raise the illuminous banner of faith in the universe

Orthodoxy you are the spring of deep and great faith
You are the light of God on Earth and prayer and worship
We are in Your yards with dewy green flowers
We are moons at the port of the living Christ the Saviour of the humanity
Orthodox people that is us and light the Truth shining
We are army in school of the Faith in the forefront
We guard the homelands, we build everything in them magnificent
We preserve the Convent in the Spirit and defend our Jordan precious, rich - lantern of the splendours
Orthodox people we live in harmony
and calling [God] like doves and eagles without colaboration
And examples for the peace and let be peace on the Earth

Since today (according to the new calendar) is feast of st. Angelina (she was Albanian and Serbian), song for her:
На небу високом,
Недремано око,
Све види, гледа
у срцe дубоко.

На златноме зраку
небеских милина
златну песму тка
Мајка Ангелина.

Из лепоте њене,
чедности и сна,
сија наша молитва,
сија наша утеха.

Молитвама Свете
Мајке Ангелине
Свака мука, туга,
Жалост да умине.

И песма ова,
Нека се вије,
За васкрс Србије,
За васкрс Србије.

Да се увек памте
Сви што живот даше.
Нека сија, сија
Покајање наше.

 Златна песма њена
Вечно нек се вије.
Љубав да дарује,
Душа да верује.

-- English --
On the high heavens,
an unresting eye
sees all, looks
in the depth of hearts.

On the golden beam
of heavenly pleasures,
a golden song weaves
Mother Angelina.

From her beauty,
Virtue and dream
Gleams our prayer,
Gleams our hope.

With the prayers of
Saint Mother Angelina,
Every sorrow, woe,
Despair dwindles.

Let this song
be heard throughout,
for the reborn of Serbia,
for the reborn of Serbia.

Let they be remembered
Who gave their lives.
Let our repentance
Glow and glimmer.

May her golden song
Forever be heard,
To gift love
And belief to the soul.

Romanian paraliturgical song for the Dormition fast that is actually a kind of develompment of the exapostilarion. I've found the English translation that seems to be Google translate ;P


From diaspora, Apostles
To Gethsemane come up
And my body, says the Virgin,
With hymns bury in the ground.
Lord have mercy (3)

My beloved Son’s calling me
Next to Him – the holy place
I impart you all my blessing
As I go up from the earth.
Lord have mercy (3)

Both in heaven and on earth
Feast day is prepared for me
My Son who is Lord and God
With great honor welcomes me.
Lord have mercy (3)

Monks and believers all together
Groups in faith they do make up
Down on earth and up in heaven
Divine harmonies resound.
Lord have mercy (3)

You are sad because the good ones
In grief leave you all behind
But the name that is most precious
Through the ages does resound.
Lord have mercy (3)

I go as an intercessor
Like a mother who does care
To the weak offer my succor
Next to my sweet Son up there.
Lord have mercy (3)

Therefore, O pure Virgin
Receive our humble prayers
And with mercy look toward us
When we are in need and pains.
Lord have mercy (3)

As for our gratitude
Your icon we venerate
And in faith we’ll always sing
Your Dormition – blessed event.
Lord have mercy (3)


De la margini, O Apostoli
La Ghetsimani v-adunați
Și-al meu trup, zice Fecioara,
Cu cântări m-il îngropați.
Doamne miluiește (3)

Fiul meu iubit mă cheamă
Azi la Sine-n Cerul sfânt
Vă las Binecuvântarea
Și mă-nalț de pe pământ.
Doamne miluiește (3)

Sus și jos se întocmește
Sărbătoare-n jurul meu
Și cu cinste mă primește
Fiul meu și Dumnezeu.
Doamne miluiește (3)

Monahi și creștini s-adună
Formând cete creștinești
Pe pământ și-n cer răsună
Armonii Dumnezeiești.
Doamne miluiește (3)

Sunteți triști că jale-n lume
Ce-i buni lasă-n urma lor
Dar răsună scumpul nume
Printre veacuri cu sfânt dor.
Doamne miluiește (3)

Eu ma duc mijlocitoare
Ca o Maică să vă fiu.
Celor slabi ajutătoare
Lângă dulcele Meu Fiu.
Doamne miluiește (3)

Primește-ne dar Curată
Umilitele cereri
Și la noi cu milă cată.
La necazuri și dureri.
Doamne miluiește (3)

Iar noi drept recunoștință
Venerăm icoana Ta
Totdeauna cu credință
Adormirea-Ți vom cânta.
Doamne miluiește (3)
