would that be the same hymn as: blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy and christ will forgive them in judgement.....and so on..
if not...please post up the lyrics and audio if possible
They can be considered the same. The thing is that the one you wrote above, is literlly translatad from the arabic. Actually not fully, the literll one is may be this:
"Blessed are those who have mercy upon the poor,
That mercy shall dwell upon them,
And Christ may have mercy upon them on Judgement day,
And dwell with His Holy Spirit in them."
(This would be my own
So it really wouldn't sound good if you're chanting it in communion. Also since you can't always translated the same from arabic, there wouldn't be any point of tanslating. So a while ago, someone from a church here just was able to develop lent melodies that rhyme and make since in the same time. Those ones are the ones that are here on the First link above called, "Fasts/The Great Lent/Communion Melodies."
