Thread Name: Lyr Req: Gaudete (from Steeleye Span)
Subject: RE: Gaudete - Steeleye Span
So how about some help to put Joe's translation to the tune?
Just an attempt at the first 2 verses and chorus;
A, I must leave something for others
B, The Ezekiel verse could prove awkward!


Celebrate! Celebrate! for Christ the Saviour
Of the Virgin Mary's born; Celebrate!
Celebrate! Celebrate! for Christ the Saviour
Of the Virgin Mary's born; Celebrate!

Now the time of Grace has come, for which we have prayed
Now let our devotions be with songs of joy arrayed

God his manhood now takes on, Nature stands (is) amazed
Christ The King renews the world; may His name be praised
