Lyrics copied from P3 and perl-formatted --QMacrocarpa 14:24, 15 August 2007 (PDT):

"RECEIVE, O Lord, in heaven above"
"    Our prayers and supplications pure;"
"Give us a heart all full of love"
"    And steady courage to endure."
""
"Thy holy name our mouths confess,"
"    Our tongues are harps to praise thy grace;"
"Forgive our sins and wickedness,"
"    Who in this vigil seek thy face."
""
"Let not our song become a sigh,"
"    A wail of anguish and despair;"
"In loving-kindness, Lord most high,"
"    Receive to-night our evening prayer."
""
"O raise us in that day, that we"
"    May sing, where all thy Saints adore,"
"Praise to thy Father, and to thee,"
"    And to thy Spirit, evermore. Amen."
""

Notes by L2 Jkenny 19:01, 18 September 2007 (PDT)

  • Note the Syriac fonts needed for the lyric title. You don't need a Syriac font to view the PDF, but to compile and generate, a Syriac font is needed. In this case I used Estrangelo Talada (freely available from www.bethmardutho.org). I have no idea if I produced the correct characters -- I just hit the keyboard many times until I got what seemed to match the image. For this reason, I can't transliterate the characters.
