|Liturgical Context||Qurbānā and Hours of Syriac churches.|
The leliyā on Sunday includes this teśbohtā in praise of the mystery of the Incarnation. The text is in the form of couplets; each line consists of two tetrasyllabic phrases: brīk-han-nā-nā/daw-thai-būţeh// par-nes-ha-yyan/ban-wi-ū-ţā. The singers seem to follow a 4-beat metric structure in the rendition of the melody.

Blessed is the Merciful One
Who, by his grace, provided our lives with prophecy.
Through the eyes of the spirit Isaiah saw
The wonderful child of the virgin.
Mary brought forth Emmanuel,
God, the Word, without sexual intercourse.
The Holy Spirit formed in her
A pure body, as it is written.
At the moment of conception of the person of the Word,
It was united with the glorious soul.
In inseparable personal union,
So as to fulfill by it all that was his
For the redemption of all, according to his pleasure.
On the day of the annunciation, the angels
Sang praise to him with their hallelujahs in heaven above.
