Happy Christmas & Merry Everything

A Christmas Prayer

By Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

Loving Father, 

Help us remember the birth of Jesus, 

that we may share in the song of the angels,

the gladness of the shepherds, 

and the worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate

and open the door of love all over the world.

Let kindness come with every gift 

and good desires with every greeting. 

Deliver us from evil by the blessing

which Christ brings, 

and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning

make us happy to be Thy children, 

and the Christmas evening bring us to our beds 

with grateful thoughts,

forgiving and forgiven, 

for Jesusโ€™ sake. 

Amen.

Happy Song Lyric Sunday…

Today’s prompt for SLS is the, “Mersey Sound”. Is it a sound, is it a place, is it a type of music??? I’m trying to figure that out, b/c I’m thinking it might be all three.

Beat music

Music genre

Description

Beat music, British beat, or Merseybeat is a British popular music genre that developed, particularly in and around Liverpool, in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The genre melded influences from American rock and roll, rhythm and blues, skiffle, traditional pop and music hall. Wikipedia

Parent genres: RockRhythm and bluesRock and rollDoo-wop

Not having been on my blog for a bit, I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things w/this new format. The Song that I’m using for today will be a safe bet for the prompt as I kind of don’t get as this is the first time I’ve heard of this type of music genre…

The Beatles – She Loves You – “The Mersey Sound” Show

Lyrics

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You think you’ve lost your love
Well, I saw her yesterday
It’s you she’s thinkin’ of
And she told me what to say

She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
But now she says she knows
You’re not the hurtin’ kind

She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

You know it’s up to you
I think it’s only fair
Pride can hurt you, too
Apologize to her

Because she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

With a love like that
You know you should be glad
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Seems like a logical choice as where I’m at with my binge watching. I’m on season 4 of “The Crown”. Having so much fun watching the Queenie. Happy Week Blogger’s Blessings on your Sunday, it’s nice to be back ๐Ÿ˜‰ Scarlet
