Music For Lent, 2016 (Day 23)

It wouldn't be a real #LentInMusic for me without the Russians. There's something about them that is so somber yet so hopeful, they're a perfect fit for the season. And so, here's "Bless the Lord, O My Soul," from Yakiv Yatsynevych's "Liturgy of St.John Chrysostom.(Yatsynevych was actually Ukrainian, but the mood seems very similar to me.)

Also, playlist.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and not forget all His recompense,
You cleanse us from all iniquity,
You gave your life to rid us of corruption,
You are crowned with mercy and compassion,
performing Your will for good,
You renew our youth like eagles:
And your mercies, Lord,
are the end of all our troubles.
Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 
both now and forever and ever more.
Lord, have mercy.
You, O Lord. Amen.
