É Natal …

No espírito da época, deixo o som necessário para - se possível junto à lareira - se prepararem para a abertura daquela prenda que vocês merecem.

… e, se acreditam num qualquer Deus, aproveitem a letra da música para acompanhar o sempre actual Elvis e cantar, agradecendo e renovando a esperança … que por estes dias anda pela lama …


Amazing Grace! how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind but now I see

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

And when this flesh
and heart shall fail
and mortal life shall cease
I shall possess
within the vale
a life of joy and peace

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright, shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun
