"Why don't you translate a worship song into Czech?"
This has been something that people have asked me to do in the past, but I never really took it seriously. I was probably one of the best equipped people to translate songs from English to Czech, understanding the nuances of both languages. But I never got around to it.
Being here at Moody this semester, I have really missed Czech. Particularly the language! My roommates can attest to this fact. (I have woken them up several times this semester by speaking Czech in my sleep!) I feel as if my understanding of the Czech language has actually improved since I've been away. And with no one to speak with, the only thing to do is practice with myself.
So I decided to try my hand at translating! It took me about two hours, and I did some minor corrections later, but I was for the most part very pleased.
I picked a newer Hillsong song, titled "The Greatness of Our God."
So here's a little preview of it! I was able to perform at Live Music Monday up at the coffee shop I work at on campus tonight, and this was one of the songs I chose. It was really fun to be able to share it with everyone, even though they couldn't understand it! I'm even more excited to share it when I go back home to Czech for Christmas.
