Caravaggio, La Cena di Emmaus, 1601-1602
Oggi in chiesa abbiamo cantato questo inno e stasera, dopo un po' di ricerche l'ho trovato finalmente(e' che non mi ricordavo piu' il titolo!)
Two Were Bound For Emmaus
Two were bound for Emmaus,
disheartened and lost;
all their hope for the future
had been nailed to a cross.
Love unknown then walked beside them,
come back from the dead,
and they knew He was risen
in the breaking of bread.
On the Sea of Tiberius,
when the night was nearly gone
and their toil seemed so useless,
not one fish had they caught,
from the shore the stranger called to them;
"Cast your net, friends, once more."
And they filled it to bursting,
but the net was not torn.
Then they knew it was Jesus
and they hastened in to shore;
bread and fish for their breakfast
from the hands of their Lord.
"O Peter, if you love me
you must care for my sheep;
if you follow your Shepherd,
then a shepherd you'll be."
When the road makes us weary,
when our labour seems but loss,
when the fire of faith weakens
and too high seems the cost,
let the Church turn to her risen Lord,
who for us bore the cross,
and we'll find our hearts burning
at the sound of His voice.
su you tube si trova qui in una versione molto simile a quella che abbiamo usato :
E' tardi stasera ed e' stata una lunga ed uggiosissima giornata, ma almeno finalmente e' piovuto!!!
