HYMN OF PRAISE

THE HOLY PROPHET MALACHI

Malachi proclaims what the angel tells him:

The day, the day, O the day is coming! The day which like an oven is blazing.

Who will endure it? Who will survive it?

Who, with their justice, before the Judge will stand?

All non-believers as a dry stubble will be

Food for the hungry fire. Weeping, sighing and shrieking!

The fire overflows and as a river flows,

Here what can the tongue of a sinner say?

O, my priests, you, who do not render Me praise,

Why do not your tongues the glory of the Lord sing?

Everywhere, among the people, you have become despised,

For My judgment, law and miracles you scorn.

I, the Lord am speaking, the Lord of hosts,

O, of those odious sorcerers, the judgment severe!

The fire when it charges, the smoke and the dreadful rumble it chases

Then, the hand of the Lord does not caress anymore.

Repent, O people, while days you have left,

Return to Me and I will return to you.

I the Lord am speaking, the Lord of hosts,

Return to Me and I will return to you.

Malachi proclaims what the angel tells him:

The day, the day, O the day is coming! The day which like an oven is blazing.
