Advent 2019 Day 18: Newsong: Christmas Carol

Facebook Tweet

A gyerekkorunkban megtanult karácsonyi dalok örökre velünk maradnak. Még akkor is, amikor már nem is gondolnánk. A dal egy idős hölgy különös és megható története. Vajon miért nevezték őt úgy, hogy „Karácsonyi ének”?

I first met her in December,

On a snowy winter's night.

And it didn't take me long to see

That something wasn't right.

 

They called her Christmas Carol,

Said her mind was nearly gone,

But she could still light up the room

When she sang a Christmas song.

 

Seems no one knows the story

To explain her Christmas cheer.

Why, she keeps the decorations up

All through the year.

 

And though she long ago

Forgot the names of family and friends,

When it comes to singing Christmas songs,

She's like a child again.

 

[CHORUS:]

Sing, oh sing, Christmas Carol,

Sing with all of your might!

Sing Joy to the World,

Sing O Holy Night!

You're closer now to Jesus

Than you've ever been;

Sing, oh sing, Christmas Carol,

Sing your songs to Him.

 

I'd told my son about her,

So I thought I'd take him by.

And he was so amazed at all

The tinsel and the lights.

 

She laughed and told her stories

Of her Christmas memories,

But nothing told it better than

When she began to sing.

 

[CHORUS]

 

Last time that I saw her,

She didn't recognize me.

Her hair was thin and she was frail,

And she couldn't even speak.

 

But I could sit down next to her,

Sing her favorite Christmas songs,

And somehow, God only knows how,

She could still sing right along!
