One Wish For Christmas


(Oooh oooh oooh oooh)
If there were no presents
Waiting on Santa's sleigh
What would I wish for Christmas
And if Frosty the Snowman
Were melting away
I would pray for hope and unity
On Christmas day

If I had one wish for Christmas
There would be joy
And peace here on earth
If I had one wish for Christmas this year
We would all come together as one

If Rudolph and his reindeer
Ran into delays
I'd still hope for joy this season
And if somehow Santa got lost on his way
I would try to find a way to smile
Smile on Christmas day

[Chorus]

You know it ain't about
All those material things (no no)
What you've gotta think about
Is the love Christmas brings (yeah)

[Chorus 2x]




先日、教会でクイズがあり、当たった人がいくつかの質問に答えていましたが、その中に、「好きな讃美歌は何ですか」という質問がありました。自分が訊かれたら?と考えてみましたが、何十年も教会に通っているのに特にこれといった讃美歌は浮かばないのです。情けない。でもホイットニー・ヒューストンの曲の中にとても懐かしいものを見つけました。




Jesus Loves Me

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! He who died,
Heaven's gate to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
Let His little child come in.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! loves me still,
When I'm very weak and ill;
From His shining throne on high,

C
omes to watch me where I lie.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.


Jesus loves me! He will stay,
Close beside me all the way;
He's prepared a home for me,
And some day His face I'll see.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.


子どもの頃、亡き母が教えてくれた讃美歌。もちろん日本語ですけど。




主われを愛す

主われを愛す 主は強ければ
われ弱くとも 恐れはあらじ
わが主イエス わが主イエス
わが主イエス われを愛す

わが罪のため さかえをすてて
天(あめ)よりくだり 十字架につけり
わが主イエス わが主イエス
わが主イエス われを愛す

みくにの門(かど)を ひらきてわれを
招きたまえリ いさみて昇(のぼ)らん
わが主イエス わが主イエス
わが主イエス われを愛す

わが君(きみ)イエスよ われをきよめて
よきはたらきを なさしめたまえ
わが主イエス わが主イエス
わが主イエス われを愛す




わたしの原点です。

      最近のお気に入り
      お久しぶりです。何から再開しようかとちょっと迷いましたが、
      まず、最近のお気に入りの歌手・エヴァ・キャシディとベス・ニールセン・チャップマンの曲をご紹介します。





      What a Wonderful World




      Somewhere Over the Rainbow




      Fields of Gold




      Sand and Water




      Every December Sky




      Say Goodnight, not Goodbye


      最近、あまりゆとりがなく、以前のようには写真も撮っていませんでした。
      で、ふと気づいたら、もうすっかり紅葉の季節で、なんだかちょっと焦ってしまいました。
      今年はコスモスも見に行けなかったのですが、先日、公園でボランティアをしている友だちから聞いた話によると、
      コスモスが咲く頃、台風が来たり寒かったりして、今年はコスモスの花、あまり見事じゃなかったそうです。
      その友だちにも最近ちょっと大変なことがあり、仕事先の利用者さんや田舎の両親や周りの人たちにもいろいろあって、
      人生ってほんとに厳しいな、としみじみ思うこの頃です。


      わたしがブログを始めたのは2003年なので、考えたら、今年でちょうど10年になります。
      でも、1か月もブログを更新しなかったのは初めてで、
      Kさん(ありがとう)だけじゃなく、あつこさん、どうしちゃったんだろうと
      心配していた方がほかにもおられたかしら。
      これからも時々更新が途絶えたりするかもしれませんが、
      ブログをやめるつもりはないし、わたしは元気なのでご安心ください。

      ではまた明日(たぶん)

          Christmas songs by Julie Andrews



          Jingle Bells




          I Wonder As I Wander

          I wonder as I wander out under the sky
          How Jesus the Saviour did come for to die
          For poor on'ry people like you and like I
          I wonder as I wander out under the sky

          When Mary birthed Jesus 'twas in a cow's stall
          With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all
          But high from God's heaven, a star's light did fall
          And the promise of ages it then did recall

          If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing
          A star in the sky or a bird on the wing
          Or all of God's Angels in heaven to sing
          He surely could have it, 'cause he was the King




          The Sound Of Christmas




          Ding Dong Merrily On High




          See Amid The Winter Snow

          See amid the winter's snow
          Born for us on earth below
          See the tender Lamb appears
          Promised from eternal years

          Hail, thou ever-blessed morn
          Hail, redemption's happy dawn
          Sing through all Jerusalem
          Christ is born in Bethlehem

          Lo, within a manger lies
          He who built the starry skies
          He who throned
          In height sublime
          Sits amid the cherubim

          Say, ye holy shepherds, say
          What your joyful news today
          Wherefore have ye
          Left your sheep
          On the lonely mountain steep?

          As we watched at dead of night
          Lo, we saw a wondrous light
          Angels singing peace on earth
          Told us of the Saviour's birth

          Sacred infant, all divine
          What a tender love was thine
          Thus to come from highest bliss
          Down to such a world as this

          Teach, O teach us, Holy Child
          By Thy Face so meek and mild
          Teach us to resemble Thee
          In Thy Sweet humility




          先日、YouTubeで久々にジュリー・アンドリュースの歌声を聴き、
          ああ、やっぱり大好き!と思い、クリスマスアルバムを買いました。
          今年はジュリー・アンドリュースの歌声とともにクリスマスを迎えます。

              I Look To You
              'I Look To You' と 'I Didn't Know My Own Strength' は2009年に出されたアルバムに収められている曲です。
              響いてくるものがあったので、歌詞も一緒に載せます。



              I look to You

              As I lay me down
              Heaven hear me now
              Im lost without a cause
              After giving it my all

              Winter storms have come
              And darkened my sun
              After all that I've been through
              Who on earth can I turn to

              I look to you
              I look to you

              After all my strength is gone
              In you I can be strong

              I look to you
              I look to you

              Yeah

              And when melodies are gone
              In you I hear a song

              I look to you

              After losing my breath
              There's no more fighting left
              Sinking to rise no more
              Searching for that open door

              And every road that I've taken
              Lead to my regret
              And I don't know if Im gonna make it
              Nothing to do but lift my head

              I look to you
              I look to you

              Yeah

              And when all my strength is gone
              In you I can be strong

              I look to you
              I look to you

              Oh yeah

              And when melodies are gone
              In you I hear a song

              I look to you


              (my levies have broken, my walls have come)

              Coming down on me

              (crumbling down on me)

              All the rain is falling

              (the rain is falling, defeat is calling)

              Set me free

              (i need you to set me free)

              Take me far away from the battle
              I need you
              Shine on me

              I look to you
              I look to you

              After all my strength has gone
              in you I can be strong

              I look to you
              I look to you

              and when melodies are gone
              In you I hear a song

              I look to you

              yeah

              I look to you
              oooooooh
              I look to you




              I Didn't Know My Own Strength
               
              Lost touch with my soul
              I had nowhere to turn, I had nowhere to go
              Lost sight of my dream
              Thought it would be the end of me

              I, I thought I'd never make it through
              I had no hope to hold on to
              I, I thought I would break

              I didn't know my own strength
              And I crashed down and I tumbled, but I did not crumble
              I got through all the pain
              I didn't know my own strength

              Survived my darkest hour, my faith kept me alive
              I picked myself back up, hold my head up high
              I was not built to break
              I didn't know my own strength

              Found hope in my heart
              I found the light to life my way out of the dark
              Found all that I need here inside of me

              Oh, I thought I'd never find my way
              I thought I'd never lift that weight
              I thought I would break

              I didn't know my own strength
              And I crashed down and I tumbled, but I did not crumble
              I got through all the pain
              I didn't know my own strength

              Survived my darkest hour, my faith kept me alive
              I picked myself back up, hold my head up high
              I was not built to break
              I didn't know my own strength

              There were so many times
              I wondered how I'd get through the night
              I thought I took all that I could take

              I didn't know my own strength
              And I crashed down and I tumbled, but I did not crumble
              I got through all the pain
              Oh, I didn't know my own strength

              My faith kept me alive
              I picked myself back up, I hold my head up high
              I was not built to break
              I didn't know my own strength

              I was not built to break, no, no
              I got to know my own strength




              Why Does It Hurt So Bad

              Why does it hurt so bad
              Why do I feel so sad
              Thought I was over you

                Count On Me
                大好きな曲を3曲。



                Count On Me


                Count on me through thick and thin
                A friendship that will never end
                When you are weak, I will be strong
                Helping you to carry on
                Call on me, I will be there

                But we'll get through cause love wouldnt let us fall

                Count on me through thick and thin (...count on me...I’ll be there)

                There's a place inside of all of us
                Where our faith in love begins
                You should reach to find the truth in love
                The answers there within, ohhhh
                I know that life can make you feel
                It's much harder than it really is

                That's What Friends Are For

                And I never thought I'd feel this way
                And as far as I'm concerned
                I'm glad I got the chance to say
                That I do believe I love you

                And if I should ever go away
                Well, then close your eyes and try to feel
                The way we do today
                And then if you can remember

                Keep smiling, keep shining
                Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
                That's what friends are for
                For good times and bad times
                I'll be on your side forever more
                That's what friends are for

                Well, you came and opened me
                And now there's so much more I see
                And so by the way I thank you

                Whoa, and then for the times when we're apart
                Well, then close your eyes and know
                These words are coming from my heart
                And then if you can remember, oh

                Keep smiling, keep shining
                Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
                That's what friends are for
                In good times, in bad times
                I'll be on your side forever more
                Oh, that's what friends are for

                On me, for sure
                That's what friends are for
                Keep smiling, keep shining

                    Monkey Majik
                    昨夜の番組で初めて知ったMonkey Majik。

                    仙台を拠点に活動しているグループですが、
                    東日本大震災の後は音楽活動ができなくなり、被災地でボランティアをしていたそうです。

                    10月には仙台でチャリティライブを行い、それに先駆けてつくったのが「Headlight」。
                    とても良かったのでお聴きください。




                    「Headlight」

                    ほかにもこんな曲をつくっています。



                    「ただ、ありがとう」




                    「together」



                    *公式HPはこちらです。
