One of my favorite parts of any worship service is the singing, and this is especially true in a country where the majority of my singing time (while driving) has been removed. I still love singing in Greek, which is a little weird because I can pronounce things even if I don’t understand what I am singing.
There are a lot of translated American worship songs in the Greek churches, which is a shame, because I don’t particularly like American worship songs. HOWEVER, there is this one song that I’m a huge fan of, mostly because it’s really powerful and kind of foreign-sounding. As part of my Greek lesson, my teacher had me actually translate the words, so now I know that I am not accidentally blaspheming while singing.
They’re singing the song a bit too fast for my taste in this video, but you get the idea. The minor key!! I am a sucker for minor keys.
