The Divine Liturgy, θεία λειτουργία, of St. John Chrysostom is the second most practiced Liturgy in Christendom (next to the Roman rite Mass). This video is a tribute to the great Liturgy of the east, not a live presentation of it. This is the primarily used Divine Liturgy of the Eastern Churches (Orthodox and Catholic). This video contains a number of images of the Liturgy in practice across a wide array of churches and rites. The musical selections, from the CD “Sacred Treasures” are (in order) the Great Ektenia, Cherubic Hymn, Amen and With Thy Spirit, and Otche Nash. God bless you all.
This hymn is taken from the Psalm 8, it is verse 2. The background image depicts Pope St. Leo the Great meeting with Attila the Hun. The Latin lyrics and English translation follow:
Domine, Dominus noster, quam admirabile est nomen tuum in universa terra!
Quoniam elevata est magnificentia tua super cælos.
O Lord, our Lord, how admirable is your name in the whole earth!
For your magnificence is elevated above the heavens.
