“House Blessing”

If you’ve ever been to an Orthodox House Blessing, you will find this video hilARious.

These are the words the boy is singing, in case you can’t understand him;) Whenever a house is blessed, the priest and all the members of that household sing the song over and over again, usually around100x by the time every room has been blessed.

When You, O Lord were baptized in the Jordan
The worship of the Trinity was made manifest
For the voice of the Father bore witness to You
And called You His beloved Son.
And the Spirit, in the form of a dove,
Confirmed the truthfulness of His word.
O Christ, our God, You have revealed Yourself
And have enlightened the world, glory to You!
