Glorious Coptic Church Lyrics

1- Glorious Coptic Church, Christ's Holy Body,

Is a nave, chorus of deacons and a sanctuary.


2- Sanctuary is separated by an iconstasis,

Inside is the altar there Abouna serves the Eucharist.


3- The sanctuary is the Holiest place like the Holy of Holies,

On its altar we see the paten, ark and chalice.


4- Incense, candles, lights and saints' icons,

Every time I pray, I ask their intercessions.


5- To the west side, there is the baptismal font,

Babies get baptized then proceed to the front.


6- The Baptism is followed by the Holy Chrismation,

We get 36 anointments for confirmation.


7- I never partake of Holy Communion,

Unless I confess and get the absolution.


8- Offering of the Lamb is done in cooperation,

Of Abouna and deacons praying Kirye-layson.


9- We join in prayer as Abouna selects a Lamb,

Out of 3 or 5 or 7 orbanas.


10 Holy Orbanas are known also as 'oblations'

"Remember them O Lord and by whom they were offered."


11 Each Orbana bears crosses and inscription,

Pierced with 5 holes to remind us of holy passions.


12 Mass starts with the prayer of Reconciliation,

And it concludes with the Benediction.
