Христос народився!

Upper_Kananaskis_lake_Alberta_Canada_winter_2017_(39430180532)
Христос народився, славімо Його!
У пісні, думці, ділі –
З любов’ю, мудрістю, сміливістю – Пана всього.
Бог прийшов до нас у тілі!

Слава Богу заспіваймо.
Радістю, надією серця укріпляймо.
Христос народився від Марії Діви –
Хай подячно з веселістю залунають співи!

Christmas Joy

Upper_Kananaskis_lake_heading_west._(15620569419)
Today the Great Joy came;
Therefore, let no one be sad:
Wise and silly, fit and lame,
Rich and poor, single and Dad.

The Peace has come;
Let no one be thinking of rage;
Let all be armed with love at least with some;
Let us sing, let us be sage.

This Day the King of unity
Has joined forces with us,
Therefore, our focus is the community;
Let us rejoice, seek peace and share the Christmas spirit thus.

Starting all over

Don’t be afraid to start
From the beginning –
Like Job did as God put it to his heart –
Despite all uncertainties towards which you may be leaning.

Your song will be winning;
Your reward will be great;
Your family will join you in singing;
You will pass many although you have come late.

Hey, what are you doing for the rest of your life?

When you meet the one, the husband or the wife,
It’s more that just “how is your day”,
It’s “hey, what are you doing for the rest of your life?”
“We’ll share all things, we’ll dance, we’ll sing, we’ll pray”.

When this happens, be sincere;
Be able to keep silence, say a smart joke;
Be not away on your phone, be with him/her here.
When the time comes, share whatever yoke.

Боже, поклади охорону устам моїм

Боже, поклади охорону устам моїм,
Перегорожу ротові моєму.

Ти випробував мене,
Ти знаєш, коли я лягаю і коли я встаю.
Подивись, Боже, чи не на хибному я шляху
І направ мене на шлях вічності,
Господи, сила мого спасіння!

Знаю я, що Господь творить правду бідному
І милість справедливому;
А пригніченим – справедливість.
Так! Справедливі зрадіють,
Пригнічені співатимуть Імені Твоєму!

Боже, дай мені бачити гріхи мої
І не докоряти ближнім моїм!
Боже, поклади охорону устам моїм,
Перегорожу ротові моєму.

Bells are singing a merry tune

Upper_Kananaskis_lake_(15621455067)
Bells are singing a merry tune
Above the city and country, forest, and dune;
The Wonderful Day is coming here,
Fairy Christmas is already near.

Don’t hesitate,
Open your heart till it’s not too late:
All your dreams will come true,
Believe and the rain of grace will pour upon you.

You are free in God, so –
More confidence, be ready to mow.
Merry Christmas I wish!
Be blessed and enjoy your Christmas dish!

Christmas is coming

Bells are singing,
Wonderful tunes are ringing!
Smile, blessed you are!
Let your heart follow Jesus, our Star!

Christmas is coming, listen and look!
Everyone is going carol-singing, even a rook.
Give your neighbour a smile!
Be yourself, show your kind heart, your own style!
