This choral version of the Lord’s Prayer in Swahili moved me to tears. Mrs. Holleran shared it as part of our worship in chapel this week, and we thought you might like to see it too. It’s a new favorite for me, as I imagine all the tongues and tribes and nations worshipping the One True God around the throne.
“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’ And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.’”
