Den Engelske Julekalender: 2. december

Ved mange gudstjenester i julemåneden kan man høre den smukkeste korsang fra kirkens drengekor. Denne herlige gamle julesalme er én af dem, man ofte hører sunget – og vaskeægte engelsk julestemning spreder sig straks helt ned i tæerne…

Sussex Carol (On Christmas Night)

 

On Christmas night all Christians sing

To hear the news the angels bring

On Christmas night all Christians sing

To hear the news the angels bring

 

News of great joy news of great mirth

News of our merciful King’s birth

 

Then why should men on earth be so sad

Since our Redeemer made us glad

Then why should men on earth be so sad

Since our Redeemer made us glad

 

When from our sin he set us free

All for to gain our liberty?

 

When sin departs before his grace

Then life and health come in its place

When sin departs before his grace

Then life and health come in its place

 

Angels and men with joy may sing

All for to see the new born King

 

All out of darkness we have light

Which made the angels sing this night

All out of darkness we have light

Which made the angels sing this night

 

Glory to God and peace to men

Now and forever more, Amen.

Det er King’s College Cambridge, der synger. Hvordan er det nu… ligger universitetsbyen Cambridge nord eller syd for London?  :-)
