St James Orthodox Church Williamston, Michigan

In a small-town 100-year old brick church resembling a one-room school house is a quiet little prayerful parish from various Protestant, Roman Catholic and Orthodox backgrounds. The prayerfulness of the people is reflected in the singing, standing, chanting, and stillness emulating those few scriptural references to worship in heaven, as everyone tries to connect their heart to the heart of God ... more

Track Name: Great Doxology
Glory to Thee who has shown us the light.
Glory be to God on high and earth peace and good will among men.
We praise Thee, we bless Thee, we worship Thee,
We magnify Thee, we give thanks unto Thee,
For Thy great glory.
O Lord, heavenly King, God the Father almighty,
O Lord the only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
O Lord God, Lamb of God,
Son of the Father that takest away the sin of the world,
Have mercy on us, Thou that takest away the sin of the world.
Receive our prayer, Thou that sittest on the right hand of the Father
And have mercy on us.
For Thou only are holy, Thou only art the Lord, O Jesus Christ
To the glory of God the Father. Amen.
Every day will I bless Thee,
And I will praise Thy name forever, yea forever and ever.
Vouchsafe O Lord to keep us this day without sin.
Blessed art Thou O Lord, God of our fathers,
And praised and glorified be Thy name forever. Amen.
Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we do put our hope in Thee.
Blessed art Thou Lord, teach me Thy statues. (3x)
Lord, Thou has been our refuge in all generations.
I said, be merciful unto me,
Heal my soul for I have sinned against Thee.
Lord, I have fled unto Thee,
Teach me to do Thy will for Thou art my God.
For with Thee is the Fountain of Life,
And in Thy light shall we see light.
O continue Thy loving kindness unto them that know Thee.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal have mercy on us. (3x)
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
Now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Holy Immortal have mercy on us.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal have mercy on us.
Track Name: Transfiguration Troparion
Thou was transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God,
Revealing Thy glory to Thy disciples as far as they could bear it.
Let Thine everlasting light also shine upon us sinners,
Through the prayers of the Theotokos.
O giver of light, glory to Thee.
Track Name: Joy of all who sorrow Icon (Sedalen #1)
Assuage thou the pain of my anguished soul, O thou that hast wiped every tear from every face of the earth; for thou dost drive pain away from men and dost put an end to the sorrows of the sinful. Thee have we all acquired as our hope and confirmation, O all-holy Virgin Mother.
Track Name: Joy of all who sorrow Icon (Sedalen #2)
O good Virgin Theotokos, thou hope of the world, we beseech thine awesome intercession alone. Take pity upon helpless people and entreat the merciful God, that our souls be delivered from all threat, O thou that alone art blessed.
Track Name: Joy of all who sorrow Icon (Sedalen #3)
The comfort of the sorrowing, the release of the ailing, art Thou, O all-hymned Theotokos. Save thy city and thy people, O pacification of them that do battle, calm of the tempest-tossed, O thou that alone art the intercessor for the faithful.
Track Name: Magnificat
My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

Refrain: More Honorable than the Cherubim,
And more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim.
Without corruption Thou gavest birth to God, the Word.
True Theotokos we magnify thee.

For He has looked upon the lowliness of His handmaiden. For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.


For the mighty One hath done great things to me, and holy is His name. And His mercy in on them that fear Him, unto generation and generation.


He hath shown strength with His arm. He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their heart.


He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and exulted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent empty away.


He hath holpen His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy. As He spake to our fathers, to Abraham and his seed forever.

Track Name: Jesus Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God have mercy on me a sinner.
