Day five of our #lwfadvent calendar. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Suriname shares a typical Advent and Palm Sunday hymn, Dem Jerusalem pikin (The children of Jerusalem). The song accompanied by the organ of the Maarten Luther kerk der ELKS is in Sranan, the informal but widely accepted national language.
During this Advent season, LWF member churches share hymns to show how the Lutheran communion prepares for Christ’s coming into this world.
The lyrics can be found in the Comments, along with an English translation.
