Liebe Leser, liebe Freunde und Bekannte,

ich wünsche Ihnen und Euch frohe und gesegnete Weihnachten!

Möge das Geburtsfest Christi uns den Blick für das Wesentliche, welches in einem turbulenten politischen Jahr vielleicht manchmal auf der Strecke geblieben ist, wieder eröffnen.

Beste Grüße

Carol: The Truth from above

„This is the truth sent from above,
The truth of God, the God of love;
Therefore don’t turn me from your door,
But hearken all both rich and poor.

The first thing which I do relate
Is that God did man create;
The next thing which to you I’ll tell
Woman was made with man to dwell.

And we were heirs to endless woes,
Till God the Lord did interpose;
And so a promise soon did run
That he would redeem us by his Son.

And at that season of the year
Our blest Redeemer did appear;
He here did live, and here did preach,
And may thousands he did teach.

Thus he in love to us behaved,
To show us how we must be saved;
And if you want to know the way,
Be pleased to hear what he did say.“

Englisches Volkslied
Eine, wie ich finde, sehr schöne Aufnahme dieses Liedes gesungen vom Chor des St.-John’s-College der Universität Cambridge gibt es hier.
