Humm, I am to write about my 3 favorite songs. And I am supposed to write and write without correcting my spelling, punctuation, or grammar. That drove me nuts. I went back and corrected it all because I want readers to understand what I write. So here are my latest ramblings of my mind:
What are my 3 most favorite songs? I know a lot of songs and I like a lot of songs. This is hard. Let me think on this. Well, to begin with my favorite Christmas song ever is “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”. I like the majestic sounding music of that song and the words portray hope and peace on earth and may all nations be peaceable. And it focuses on Jesus who was born in Bethlehem, Jesus the hope of Christmas.
Humm let me think of another great and favorite song, oh I know, “The Circle of Life” song featured in The Lion King and sung by Elton John. To me that song inspires one to cherish the planet we all live on. I especially love the line, “sun rolling high in sapphire skies.”…that just captures my imagination as I consider the natural beauty of earth. And we’re to not take our days, our time on earth for granted.
Let me think, another very special favorite song is “How Great Thou Art”. A very old hymn and it too is very majestic sounding. Hearing a great rendition of it by an orchestra sends chills up my spine. The words also are beautiful. The first two verses focus on the beauty of our universe and earth. The last two verses focus on God and his son Jesus. I have loved that song since going to vacation bible school when I was a kid. We rode our bikes there to an old one room school house where all the kids of the neighborhood met up to visit, learn, and play at this old schoolhouse. The teachers were kind and very interesting. There were from Chicago and the beauty of Wisconsin really captured them. They thought our hills were beautiful mountains. I guess they never been to California or Wyoming. Now those states have mountains, I have seen them and tried to climb them. Nevertheless, I enjoyed seeing those teachers every summer and I treasured that time in that old schoolhouse.
Oh, I love ‘Hark the Herald Angel Sing’ as well, as it’s usually the first carol I hear after midnight on Christmas Eve, which just so happens to be my favourite point of the year.
I also make sure I hear that one every Christmas. I several other favorite Christmas songs too but Hark the Herald Angels sing is right on top as my favorite.
I think my favorite song for Christmas is “O Holy Night” but Hark the Herald Angels sing is up there too.
Oh yes, I like O Holy Night too!!
