Silver Bells (Cover)

Silver Bells (Cover; composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans). Recorded live in performance; Michele Baron, art, vocals, video.
Lyrics:
City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing,
Meeting smile after smile,
And on every street corner you'll hear

Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas day

Strings of street lights, even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green, as the shoppers rush home
with their treasures
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch,
This is Santa's big scene, and above all the bustle you'll hear

ilver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas day

Sleep now, You, Little Jesus,
I'll lend you a coat of fur...
We will then shelter you (koliba = chalet)
My darling, sweet one, sleep (pospat = sleep)
Sleep now, You, Little Jesus,
In your wrapping of fur...

Sleep now, You, darling,
Sweetest, Mary's Son;
We will then shelter you
sweetly to sleep...
Sleep now, You, darling,
Mary's Son...

(Percy Dearmer, Oxford Book of Carols translation:
Little Jesus, sweetly sleep, do not stir;
we will lend you a coat of fur,
we will rock you, rock you, rock you;
we will rock you, rock you, rock you;
see the fur to keep you warm,
snugly round your tiny form.

Mary's little baby, sleep, sweetly sleep,
Sleep in comfort, slumber deep;
we will rock you, rock you, rock you,
we will rock you, rock you, rock you;
we will serve you all we can,
Darling, darling little man)

It came upon a Midnight Clear

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear (Richard Storrs Willis/Edmund H. Sears) Recorded live in performance; Michele Baron, vocals, art, video
Lyrics:
It came upon a midnight clear, that glorious song of old
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold
Peace on the earth, good will to men
From heaven's all-gracious King,
The world in solemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing

Fo lo! the days are hastening on, by prophets seen of old,
When with the ever-encircling years shall come the time fortold,
When peace shall over all the earth, its ancient splendors fling,
And the whole world give back the song
Which now the angels sing

The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting... ; Cover)

25-12-2014

The Christmas Song ("Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) (Cover; written by Bob Wells and Mel Torme). Recorded Live in Performance; Michele Baron, Vocals, Art, Video.
Lyrics:
Chestnust Roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas to you

The Boundless Gift (original song)

The Boundless Gift (Michele Baron, composer, performance, art, video). Recorded live in performance
Lyrics:
The Boundless Gift

From mountains frozen heights,
Across the trackless desert sands,
In teeming cities proud, in fields of vibrant green,
Through ruined streets of war-torn lands,
Weve walked, so many years
weve wept, so many tears

Fraught with grief and care,
Weve fallen far from Edens tree,
Weve walked so long through life, but still we do not see;
And move beyond the walls we raise,
Fulfill Your promise, and build peace,
With hope and love, to sing Your praise

Soft as morning sun,
Your Spirit lightens all our years,
We share our brothers joys, we share the pain and fears,
We learn through grace to walk with You,
And we never walk alone

The boundless gift of God above,
Leads us to Your endless love
