Recording from the Christmas concert that our church choirs at Transcona Memorial United Church (TMUC) put on. The sound is a bit flat, and my voice is, well… mmm… judge for yourself. I hadn’t sung in days struggling with a nasty cold that kept me coughing and blowing my nose. On the morning of the concert I couldn’t even speak. Gradually throughout the day I managed to get my voice back and was able to participate in the almost 2 hour concert. I was scheduled to sing almost at the end. Not sure if that was a good, or bad thing. Accompanied by Steve who provided rhythm to keep me in time, I managed to finish the song without coughing and hit the “F” without choking… ;-)

With wonder
and delight
he
looked

And saw
how
the seasons
change
month
after month
year
after year

Our planet
revolving
around
the sun

More wonder
still
in my
own mind

Seeing
how
he’s grown
month
after month
year
after year

This boy
now taller
than me,
my son

Gently
drifting
down
I feel
invincible
gleaming
in the
starry light

The
freezing
cold
does no
harm

Becoming
one with
my brethren
we silently
lie joyously
beneath
a starry
winter’s night

And
become
part of
Christmas’
charm
