|1- Dear abouna, I love you,
Because you are the one who
Can know me and call my name,
And bless me when I come to you.
2- After the name of the saint,
Martyr, confessor, prophet,
A precious name, O abouna,
Was given when you're ordained.
3- Abouna, that helps remind
Of a life sanctified.
Their intercessions and your prayers
Are accepted to our Lord.
4- The wisdom has built her house,
Hewn out her seven pillars; (Prov. 9:1)
Seven sacraments abouna
Serves them for our sake.
5- Prayers for the perfect peace,
The safety of every place
With the raising of incense,
Matins, vespers, and in mass.
6- Whenever I go around,
I remember how you sound
In sermons, but most of all,
By your example I'm bound.
7- Like a faithful good shepherd
You work hard to restore us.
Into the shed we get together,
And be happy with our Lord.
