Dry bones, stand up!

Ossements desséchés, levez-vous

Dry bones, stand up !

English version below the video

Samedi dernier  29 Avril 2017 à Amiens  la chorale Alléluia-les Rieux où je chante comme ténor, a donné un concert en hommage à un prêtre d’Amiens  compositeur de musique, l’abbé René Reboud . Janine a voulu venir et a pris non sans difficulté (avec son bras douloureux)  dans le foule quelques vidéos .  Voici  l’une d’elle : «  Ossements desséchés ». Ce chant d’espérance convient bien avec le temps pascal où on célèbre la Résurrection : Ossements desséchés, levez-vous . Les  paroles des versets sont inspirés directement du prophète Ezéchiel 37, 1-14 dont les mots visaient à redonner espoir aux Juifs déportés à Babylone et complètement désespérés ( 6ème siècle avant J-C )

Ossements desséchés  (bis ), levez-vous. Ho ! Ho !
Le Seigneur vous appelle autour de son drapeau Ho ! Ho ! Ho !
Ossements desséchés ( bis) levez-vous .Ho ! Ho !
Le Seigneur est proche.  Il reviendra bientôt

Psalmodie ( inspirée du prophète Ezéchiel  37)

1.       Et je prophétisai  sur l’ordre du Seigneur.  Et voici un bruit retentissant,
Et le os se rapprochèrent les uns des autres et se couvrirent de muscles et de chair.

2.       Et je prophétisai sur l’ordre du Seigneur. Et l’Esprit les anima
Et ils tinrent sur leurs pieds, grande, immense armée.

3.       Ainsi parle le Seigneur Yahvé : «  Ne dites plus nos os sont desséchés,
notre espérance est morte «   car je vous ferai remonter de vos tombeaux.

4.       Ainsi parle le Seigneur Yahvé ; « Je mettrai mon esprit en vous et vous vivrez.
Je vous donnerai du repos dans votre Cité. Et vous saurez que je fais ce que je dis «

Musique et paroles   de René Reboud prêtre à Amiens . 1914-1984. Les paroles sont directement inspirées de la Bible , livre d’ Ezéchiel, chapitre 37, versets 1 à 14 )

Last Saturday, April 29, 2017 in Amiens ( France), the choir “Alléluia-les Rieux”, where I sing as a tenor, gave a concert in homage to a priest of Amiens, a music composer, René Reboud.  Janine came and took not without difficulty (with her painful arm) in the crowd some videos. Here is one of them: “Dry bones “. This song of hope goes well with the Easter time when the Resurrection is celebrated: dry bones, stand  up!. The words of the verses are directly inspired by the prophet Ezekiel 37: 1-14 whose words were meant to give hope to the Jews deported to Babylon and completely desperate (6th century BC)

Dry bones  (bis), stand up. Ho! Ho!
The Lord calls you around his flag Ho! Ho! Ho!
Dry bones (bis), stand up. Ho! Ho!
The Lord is near. He will return soon

Psalmody (inspired by the prophet Ezekiel 37, 1-14)

1. And I prophesied on the commandment of the Lord. And here is a resounding noise,
And the bones approached each others  and covered themselves with muscles and flesh.

2. And I prophesied on the commandment of the Lord. And the Spirit animated them
And they stood on their feet, great, great army.

3. Thus says the Lord Yahweh: “Do not say any more your bones are dried up,
Our hope is dead”, for I will bring you up from your tombs.

4 Thus saith the Lord Yahweh; “I will put my spirit in you and you will live.
I will give you rest in your City. And you will know that I do what I say

     Music and words by René Reboud , priest in Amiens (France). 1914-1984
   The words are inspired directly by the Bible,  Book of Ezekiel ( 37, 1-14)

    Glorious music in a beautiful church. The singing just echoes through that grand expanse! Many thanks to Janine for enduring discomfort so you could share this with us. The song depicts a very important message—death is not the end, but the beginning of a wonderful, pain-free eternal life. Love to both of you!! < Nancy and Ken

    Oh that was lovely!
    My pastor read from that passage last week at church!

  22. murisopsis says:

    I am thrilled to hear the choir singing with your added voice!! Janine did a fine job recording this. I hope her arm is healing and will be pain free soon.

  23. I enjoy very much your comment ,Val . Janine is in progress to the healing but the suffering comes back regularly after some movements . This is due to the muscles which have been strongly bruised.

  24. neilc693 says:

    How fitting for Easter. What a fine church to sing in, too.
    Here’s hoping your elections turn out right…

  25. For the results of the elections we have to wait 3 hours yet ! 🙂 We voted this morning .
    Thanks for your comment , Neil.

    • neilc693 says:

      Well, it’s good to see that sanity still prevails in France (unlike here). 🙂 I gather there are still the parliamentary elections next month, though, which will determine how much he can actually get done.

  26. julie essex says:

    So your new President is from Amiens , you must be proud. Lovely music for Easter

  27. mlbncsga says:

    Mornin Glorie! Thank You to Janine for filming!, she did an excellent job even with her bruised arm, I tried to pick you out but could not be certain, if you had your hat on it would have been easier, but I expect that would be disrespectful, it would be at our Church. The song was wonderful, I had not heard of these dry bones before!
    I do hope your happy with your new President. ILYM

  28. guestbrief says:

    So beautiful!! Thank Janine for me and I pray that her arm is feeling much better.
    love, Rhonda ❤

  29. I just came back tonight to listen to the music again.
    I hope you and Janine are having a good week.
    (((HUGS))) and ❤ and 🙂
