クリスマスソング:赤鼻のトナカイ もろびとこぞりて

クリスマスソング2曲の歌詞をメモ

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer
赤鼻のトナカイ

Joy to the world
もろびとこぞりて


=====
Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer
赤鼻のトナカイ

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then all the reindeer loved him
And they shouted out with glee
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
You'll go down in history!


真っ赤なお鼻の トナカイさんは
いつもみんなの 笑いもの
でも その年の クリスマスの日
サンタのおじさんは 言いました
暗い夜道は ピカピカの
おまえの鼻が 役に立つのさ
いつも泣いてた トナカイさんは
今宵こそはと 喜びました


(他のトナカイさんたちにも名前があります。
 Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen)

=====
Joy to the world
もろびとこぞりて

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.


もろびとこぞりて 迎えまつれ
久しく待ちにし
主は来ませり
主は来ませり
主は、主は来ませり
