Listening through Lent: Victory, Victory

During my time at Wheaton, I was blessed with a wonderful temporary church home, Jericho Road Church. One of the things I loved about Jericho Road was we would regularly sing songs in other languages. Amrit Vani was one of them. Amrit Vani is in Hindi, and the words are as follows:

Amrita vani teri, amrita vani teri
Your Immortal word, your immortal word
Jai jai Yeshu jai jai ho
Victory, victory be to Jesus, victory, victory 
Jai jai Pita jai jai ho
Victory, victory be to the Father, victory, victory 
Jai jai Putra jai jai ho
Victory, victory be to the Son, victory, victory 
Paawana Aatma jai jai ho
To the Holy Spirit be victory, victory 
Jeewana data jai jai ho
To the Life-giver be victory, victory
 
I love singing in other languages as it is a tangible reminder that we are a part of the global church, something I am apt to forget. During this Lenten season, we reflect upon Christ’s sacrifice for us. What a way to celebrate-to cry “victory, victory” to our Lord and Savior, and to be able to do in unison with brothers and sisters across the world.
