Onse Vader

I'm listening to the hymn "Onse Vader", the Afrikaans translation of The Lord's Prayer as sung by the University of Pretoria Camerata (if you really want to hear it, click here).  I don't know why, but I find reading (or listening) to the Bible in other languages to be so beautiful.  To think of prayers going up to God in every language from all over the world in one big cacophonous, impassioned plea not only gets me out of my English "bubble", but moves me - ironically - beyond words.
