クリスマスに、あなたに。





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
But I keep crying
When I don't love you
So why does it hurt so bad
I thought I had let you go
So why does it hurt me so
I gotta get you outta my head
It hurts so bad
Oh it hurts so bad baby

My life's been better
Since the day I left you boy
I must admit life's been kind to me
I went and did the things I said I would boy
I found someone who loves me for me
Haven't had much drama since the day that we split boy
My heart's never been more at ease
And when I think of all the things you put me through
Leaving you has been the best thing for me

So why does it hurt so bad
Why do I feel so sad
I thought I was over you
But I keep crying
When I don't love you
So why does it hurt so bad
Baby I thought I had let you go
So why does it hurt me so
I gotta get you outta my head
Hurts me so bad
Hurts so (yeah you do)
Hurts so (hurts me so)
Hurts so bad (did you know)
Hurts so (that it hurts me so)
Hurts so (so bad, hey hoh)

"Never again" that's what I said to myself
I never want to feel kind of pain again boy
Just when I think it's over
Just when I think it's through
I find myself right back in love with you

So why does it hurt so bad oh baby
Why do I feel so sad
(thought I thought I) Thought I was over you
I keep crying
When I don't love you (when I really don't love you boy)
(oh no oh no oh no oh no it hurts so bad, oh tell me)
So why does it hurt so bad
I thought I had let you go (thought I could let you go)
You could
Gotta get you outta my head
Boy you hurt me so bad
Hurts so (yeah you do)
Hurts so (hurt me so)
Hurts so bad (hurts so)
Hurts so (sure you did)
Hurts so (make me want to make me want to shoop shoop)
Hurts so bad (hurt me so, gotta shoop now)
Hurts so bad (Hurts me so)
Oh why, you hurt me so bad
Bad (how 'bout that?)

You'll Never Stand Alone

If there's a time when the fears should fill your eyes
And you can't see past the shadows
To the sun on the other side
Don't despair, because there always will be
someone there
Don't lose faith, love won't let you lose your way
Because

You, you'll never stand alone
I'll be standing by
I'll keep you from the cold
I'll hold you when you cry
I'll be there to be strong

When you can't find the strength inside
And you, you'll always have a home
In these arms of mine
You'll never stand alone
Love is standing by

If there's a day when the rain should find your heart
And you're cold and tried and lonely
And this would has you in the dark
Don't be scared, you can just reach for me and I'll be there
Don't lose hope, love will see you through you know
Because

You, you'll never stand alone
I'll be standing by
I'll keep you from the cold
I'll hold you when you cry
I'll be there to be strong

When you can't find the strength inside
And you, you'll always have a home
In these arms of mine
You'll never stand alone
Love is standing by

Standing by to life you above all the hurt and pain
Standing by to carry you through all the tears and ain
Reach for me, I'll be with you
Reach for me, I'll see you through

I'll be the one to hold you
The one to show you that
You, you'll never stand alone
I'll be standing by

I'll keep you from the cold
I'llhold you when you cry
I'll be there to be strong
When you can't find the strength inside
And you, you'll always have a home
In these arms of mine
You'll never stand alone
Love is standing by




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

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」
