ሰማይ ተከፈተ ደስ ይበለን ማህሌት ተሰማ ደስ ይበለን ዛሬ ተከበናል ደስ ይበለን በመለኮት ግርማ ደስ ይበለን በመለኮት ግርማ ደስ ይበለን

I heard this song on such a special feast day - አስተርእዮ - in St.Tekla Haimanot Chruch VA and thought it would be selfish if not shared.I invite you to take the pleasure in listening to it.
The February (ጥር) is known as the month of manifestation (appearing አስተርእዮ )Starting from its eve, nativity - Birth of Christ, God has revealed his divinity and the beginning of the end of Adam’s life of suffering. In Theophany , at the baptism of Christ the Holy Trinity appeared clearly to mankind for the first time -- the Father's voice is heard from Heaven, the Son of God is incarnate and standing physically in the Jordan, and the Holy Spirit descends on Him in the form of a dove. The Dormition of St.Mary or assumption .The Holy virgin died like all humanity, "falling asleep," so to speak, as the name of the feast indicates. She died as all people die, not "voluntarily" as her Son, but by the necessity of her mortal human nature which is indivisibly bound up with the corruption of this world. This event is seen as first fruits of the resurrection of the faithful that will occur at the Second Coming of Christ.
The second coming of Christ where the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
This song paints the scene.The harmony and melody gives life to the words and the stanza.
