So I’m jumping on this a little behind the times… and it’s a video game theme… but I see nothing to despise here and a lot to love.
Here’s the song; the translation (taken from Wikipedia) is below that.
|Baba yetu, yetu uliye
Mbinguni yetu, yetu amina!
Baba yetu yetu uliye
M jina lako e litukuzwe.Utupe leo chakula chetu
Makosa yetu, hey!
Kama nasi tunavyowasamehe
Katika majaribu, lakini
Utuokoe, na yule, muovu e milele!Ufalme wako ufike utakalo
Lifanyike duniani kama mbinguni.
|Our Father, who art
in Heaven. Amen!
Hallowed be thy name.Give us this day our daily bread,
Forgive us of
As we forgive others
Who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from the evil one forever.Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
This song (the version from Christopher Tin’s Calling All Dawns album, which has much to recommend it) was a surprisingly consistent source of private moral support during the early months of my catechumenate. Still is, perhaps.
