Lyrics for Oh Beloved


p style=”text-align: center;”>1- Oh beloved, oh beloved; nailed unto the cross for me
O what sin hast Thou committed; Thou who callest all to be.
Oh beloved, wish that I could; spend the rest of life with Thee
Worshipping Thine holy passion, crucifying the flesh for Thee.


p style=”text-align: center;”>2- Daughter of Zion behold Me; stricken and smitten for Thee
Friend and kin, me have forsaken; there is none to comfort me.
All alone I’ll tread the winepress, all alone I’ll drink the cup
Shedding my blood for Thee to ransom, and my flesh for Thee to sup.


p style=”text-align: center;”>3- I was bound, and I was smitten, and they did spit in my face.
I was stripped, and I was scourged, I was condemned in your place.
Your sins became my crown of thorns; Oh that you would understand
Everytime you sin a new, it’s one more nail in my hand.


p style=”text-align: center;”>4- Like a lamb brought to the slaughter, like a dumb sheep to be sheered.
King, Creator, Lord, and Master, by His creatures, mocked and jeered.
Despised, rejected, with grief acquainted, and of men was not esteemed.
Bruised and wounded, sore afflicted, yet, with His stripes we were healed.


p style=”text-align: center;”>5- Lord create in us a fountain; that with tears will ever flow.
And a heart contrite and broken, and the spirit within renew.
Oh that we could shed the tears over Thy feet pierced and bruised
Oh that we always remember, for our sins Thou wert abused.

Lyrics for O Pope Shenouda – Composed by Mark Semaan

REFRAIN:  O Pope Shenouda, O our father, and our shepherd, who showed us Christ.

You were a teacher, for everyone, you became a preacher, for the Only Son.

You left the world, to be with your God, and you sold all, and followed Christ.

In love you succeeded, in fasting you excelled, in prayers you pleaded, and to Christ you held.

You were chosen, by Our Savior, to become our Pope, and our leader.

You were a writer, a man of words, and you’re light was brighter, than the whole world.

You saw persecution, you saw tribulation, yet your love for Christ, was not moved or shaken.

You fought the good fight, you finished the race, you have gained Christ, and have joined the saints.

Intercede for us, before the Lord’s throne, we your children, as we also say.

Daniel Yousef – The Tuesday Psali

The word Psali is a Greek word which means chant (song). There are seven Psalis and each day of the week has one Psali specifically for that day.   The Psali is distinguished among our Coptic hymns in that it is organized around the name of the Lord Jesus, which is repeated in almost every verse.  With this we discover that the Coptic hymn is a dialogue with the Name of Salvation, the Name of Jesus Christ. It is not just a regular song. The Coptic fathers truly brought out the value of repeating the name of Jesus for the salvation of the person. It even became the center of their worship, and they breathed it since there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Lyrics for The Tuesday Psali

Come to us today, O Christ our Master, shine upon us, with Your exalted divinity.
Send to us, this great grace, of Your Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.

+ So that I may speak, with great honor, about Your holy, and blessed name.
+ This is He who was glorified, by the mouths of, Your righteous saints, who lived upon the earth.

By those wandering people, in the barren mountains, threatened by hunger and thirst, frost and cold.
They were needy and suffering, and afflicted, according to, Paul the apostle.

+ But Your holy name, O my Lord Jesus, upheld and delivered them, in all their sufferings.
+ Your holy name, O my Lord Jesus, saved them from all, their afflictions.

For them it was, a living food, which filled their souls, and their bodies too.
For them it was, a fountain of living water, sweeter than honey, in their mouths.

+ When they call upon it, their hearts rejoiced, and their bodies, blossomed.
+ When they uttered it, their minds were enlightened, and their hearts ascended, to the heights.
