Hymns (Mezmur)

Mezmur or a spiritual song is a form of worship in our Holy Church, which was inspired from God and was taught to us by our Father and priest, Kidus Yared.

St. Yared singing heavenly hymns.    

"...speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,  giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ...

Ephesians 5:19-20

Instead He gave me time to repent/confess

Stop World, do not hold me back

From now on, ciao be well

While I am still young, I am choosing to

Be close to God rather than earthly things

Thank You Amanuel (Jesus Christ)

Those of you that are doing earthly things

Live a bright life so that it does not become dark

Throw the earthly things away

Come help/serve your faith

Thank You Amanuel (Jesus Christ)
