Lyrics: A Child's Advent Prayer/Randolph Currie
Let us lift our voices as we wait the coming Lord;
Let us lift our voices now and offer up a song,
Come, Lord Jesus, come into our hearts;
Come, Lord Jesus, for you our spirits long.
There will be a new Messiah, born a child and yet a King;
He will bring us joy and gladness;
He will give us grace to sing;
Come, Lord Jesus, come into our hearts;
Come, Lord Jesus, make the darkness light.
Hope will have a new beginning and a bright new day!
Jesus, born of Mary, comes, as we prepare the way;
Come, Lord Jesus, come into our our hearts;
Come, Lord Jesus, be born in us today!

Lyrics: Christmas Time/Michael W. Smith/Joanna Carson
Ring Christmas bells, ring them loud with a message
Bringing peace on the earth, tiding of good cheer!
Come, carolers, come and join with the angels singing,
"Joy to the World!" Christmas time is here!
Children, gather around and listen
You'll hear the sound of angels filling the sky,
Telling everyone Christmas time is here!
Ring Christmas bells, ring them loud with a message
Bringing peace on the earth, tiding of good cheer!
Come, carolers, come and join with the angels singing,
"Joy to the World!" Christmas time is here!
Loved ones close to our hearts and strangers
In lands afar together sharing the joy
Emmanuel! Go tell the world! He has come to dwell!
The time is here! With one voice, let the world rejoice!
Ring Christmas bells, ring them loud with a message
Bringing peace on the earth, tiding of good cheer!
Come, carolers, come and join with the angels singing,
"Joy to the World!" Christmas time is here!
Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Lyrics: Gesu Bambino/ Pietro Yon
1 When blossoms flowered 'mid the snow upon a winter night
was born the Child, the Christmas rose, the King of love and light.
The angels sang, the shepherds sang, the grateful earth rejoiced.
And at His blessed birth the stars their exulation voiced.
O come, let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.
2 Again the heart with rapture glows and greet the holy night,
that gave the world its Christmas rose, its King of love and light.
Let ev'ry voice acclaim His name, the grateful chorus swell,
The grateful chorus swell. From paradise to earth He came
that we with Him might dwell, That we with Him might dwell.
O come, let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

Lyrics: Carol of the Stable/ Malcolm Archer
1 O light a candle as a sign that he is born our king divine
and in a stable bare you'll find this babe who comes to save mankind,
His mother Mary meek and mild, she sits and rocks the Holy Child,
the Lord of space and time is He, our Saviour, now in infancy.
2 Upon this freezing winter's night the shepherds see a wondrous sight,
a host of angels throng around, telling the news in glorious sound.
The shepherds rush to find this boy, whose radiance fills the world with joy,
amidst the creatures of the stall, before the child in homage fall.
3 And in the wonder of this night is born a babe of blessed light,
the joy of all the world is he, sent now to set all Christians free.
So praise with us this King of grace, whose love for all shines in His face,
and join with angel host above, to hail the birth of the Lord of love.

Test Your Reading Skill 試您的閱讀能力

Here's another trick of Doctor Dementia to test your skills....

I've seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time I've seen it with numbers. Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD, you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long long, way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

To my 'selected' strange-minded friends: If you can read the following paragraph, forward it on to your friends. Only great minds can read this. This is weird, but interesting!

If you can read this, you have a strange mind, too.
Can you read this? Only 55 people out of 100 can.

Come And See 你來看吧

Interesting Pictures-IV/有趣圖像-四
Music: Come And See by Bob Bennett
音樂: 你來看吧

歌詞 Lyrics from Gospel of John
Come and see, come and see
Come and see a Man from Heaven
Come and see, hear Him speak
He has seen the face of God

Come and see, come and see
This Jesus of Nazareth
Come and see the One that we
Have heard of all our lives

A voice crying in the wilderness
A voice from the sky loud and clear
A still, small voice deep inside
And a voice still ringing in my ear ... saying

Follow Me, Follow Me
And I will show you My Father
Follow Me and you will see
The Heavens opened wide

Come and see, come and see
Come and see this Man from Heaven
Oh, could it be? Could it be
We will see the face of God?
Oh, could it be? Could it be
We will see the face of God?

The Bay Psalm Book 海灣聖詩篇

The Bay Psalm Book was the first book printed in British North America.The book is a Psalter, first printed in 1640 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Psalms in it are metrical translations into English. The translations are not particularly polished, and none have remained in use, although some of the tunes to which they were sung have survived (for instance, "Old 100th".) However its production, just 20 years after the Pilgrims' arrival at Plymouth, Massachusetts, represents a considerable achievement. It went through several editions and remained in use for well over a century. One of eleven surviving copies of the first edition sold at auction in November 2013 for $14.2 million, a record for a printed book.

美國《海灣聖詩》獲世界最昂貴印刷物 《海灣聖詩》英譯本的歷史比美國還要悠久。
1640年出版的一本小書《海灣聖詩》(Bay Psalm Book)周二(2013年11月26日)在紐約蘇富比拍賣行拍出了1420萬美元,成為世界最昂貴印刷物。
