The object of the article is the image of the God in traditional Lithuanian folk songs. We can see philosophical and mythological aspects of the Gods perception. The aim is to understand how God was perceived. We will show his picture and the main functions. Hypothesis -the image of God is typical of traditional Lithuanian folksongs related with feeling expression, welfare, auspicious fate, willingness to escape problems, find consolation and pleading. God is treated through the feelings of song characters. His image is not concrete, but more special and abstractly interpreted. The motivation of his functions is not revealed to the ordinary people. The aim was achieved using comparative, descriptive and interpretative methods. It was analyzed the forms of Gods name and the ways of salutation, appeal and blame expressed to the God. We might say that it is fear to blame the God. Only the orphans and warriors - the people, who were disadvantaged by the destiny, express the blame. The request to the God can be groan directly or indirectly. We also emitted the main Gods function. God is interpreted as a fate giver. In songs the fate is ordained not by Laima (the goddess of destiny) but directly by God and personified soil also. In wedding songs the God appears as an active character. He answers when the orphans ask the God to release their dead parents to see their wedding. The God belongs to the sacred part of the expanse. In the work songs the God is closely connected to the sky, the light, the bright day is interpreted as a vegetation prompter and caregiver. In wedding songs he gives arbiter of the destiny to the young people in their wedding period. The custody to the dead world belongs to the God also. The God represents the transcendental sphere and rules those powers that do not belong to man
