Merry Christmas!



Pin It

Open wide the gates of your souls
We haven't come here to ask for anything, we've come here to give.

Chorus:
These pristine flowers are real and true
Just like The Good News that we bring to you.
White, pristine white flowers, real and true,
White, pristine white apple flowers.

From beyond the mountains of Life and Illusion
We harvested last night these apple flowers.
We got them from those mountains where the apple trees
Bear golden fruit forever and ever.

Chorus:
These pristine flowers are real and true
Just like The Good News that we bring to you.
White, pristine white flowers, real and true,
White, pristine white apple flowers.

The flowers that we harvested last night
Will make seeds in the fields of your souls
And they'll grow golden apples, of which
All the carolers have been dreaming of, for centuries.

Chorus:
These pristine flowers are real and true
Just like The Good News that we bring to you.
White, pristine white flowers, real and true,
White, pristine white apple flowers.


Dear friends, this is my way of wishing you for Christmas more than I can say with words. I've translated above the most beautiful lyrics I know from a Romanian carol. In the communist regime, it was illegal to sing a Christian song, and all the lyrics had to be in disguise. My extraordinary school teacher Mrs. Barzu taught us this song when we were just 7 year old. The recording is from a folk show, with two beautiful voices accompanied by a cello and a guitar.  Merry Christmas!
