    Merry Christmas!

    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

                  Count on me through thick and thin

                  I can see it's hurting you
                  I can feel your pain
                  It's hard to see the sunshine through the rain oh
                  I know sometimes it seems as if it’s never gonna end
                  But you'll get through it
                  just don't give in

                  Count on me through thick and thin
                  A friendship that will never end

                  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。
