Welkom op mijn blog. Ik ben altijd wel ergens mee bezig: met haken, quilten, handletteren, zingen of kleuren. Zoals een oud spreekwoord zegt:'Een vrouwenhand en een paardentand staan nooit stil...' Kijk mee met mijn hobby's en laat gerust eens een reactie achter.

Derde advent



(Deze keer een Engels lied)

Oh little town of Bethlehem
Looks like another silent night
Above your deep and dreamless sleep
A giant star lights up the sky
And while you're lying in the dark
There shines an everlasting light
For the King has left His throne
And is sleeping in a manger tonight, tonight
Oh Bethlehem, what you have missed
while you were sleeping
For God became a man
And stepped into your world today
Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleeping
While you were sleeping

Mary shivers in the cold
Trying to keep the Savior warm
Born among the animals wrapped in dirty rags
Because there was no room for Him
in the world He came to save

Oh Bethlehem, what you have missed
while you were sleeping
For God became a man
And stepped into your world today
Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleeping
While you were sleeping

United States of America
(Or the Netherlands, or the country where you live...)
Looks like another silent night
As we're sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children
And while we're lying in the dark
There's a shout heard 'cross the eastern sky
For the Bridegroom has returned
And has carried His bride away in the night

America, what will we miss while we are sleeping
Will Jesus come again
And leave us slumbering where we lay
America, will we go down in history
As a nation with no room for its King
Will we be sleeping
Will we be sleeping

(Casting Crowns, from the Album 'Peace on earth')
