ARTICLE: LENT


LENT
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Its institutional purpose is heightened in the annual commemoration of Holy Week, marking the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the tradition and events of the New Testament beginning on Friday of Sorrows, further climaxing on Jesus’crucifixion on Good Friday, which ultimately culminates in the joyful celebration on Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. During Lent, many of the faithful commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a form of penitence. Many Christians also add a Lenten spiritual discipline, such as reading a daily devotional, to draw themselves near to God.[6] TheStations of the Cross, a devotional commemoration of Christ’s carrying the Cross and of his execution, are often observed. Many Roman Catholic and some Protestant churches remove flowers from their altars, while crucifixes, religious statues, and other elaborate religious symbols are often veiled in violet fabrics in solemn observance of the event. Throughout Christendom, some adherents mark the season with the traditional abstention from the consumption of meat, most notably among Roman Catholics.[7]

Lent is traditionally described as lasting for forty days, in commemoration of the forty days which, according to the Gospels ofMatthewMark and Luke, Jesus spent fasting in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry, where he endured temptation by the Devil.[8][9] However, different Christian denominations calculate the forty days of Lent differently. Historically, the season of Lent lasts from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday and includes the Paschal Triduum.[10][11] This duration has been maintained by most Western Christian denominations, including the Anglican Church,[12] Lutheran Church,[13] Methodist Church,[14] and Western Rite Orthodox Church.[15] However, after the liturgical abbreviations of the Second Vatican Council in the Roman Catholic Church, Lent, in that denomination alone, is now taken to end on Maundy Thursday rather than Easter Eve, and hence lasts 38 days excluding Sundays, or 44 days in total.[10]

“Evil Ways” is a song by Santana from their 1969 album Santana


[youtube.com/watch?v=dpLDrv9fNWo]

Evil Ways” is a song by Santana from their 1969 album Santana. It was written by Clarence (Sonny) Henry and recorded by jazz percussionist Willie Bobo in 1968 on his album of the same name. The song is in simple verse form. Next year it was recorded by Santana.

Released as a single in late 1969, it became the band’s first top forty and top ten hit in the U.S., peaking at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Gregg Rolie performs the lead vocals and plays a Hammond organ solo in the middle section. The double-time coda includes a guitar solo performed by Carlos Santana.

“Evil Ways” is about a girl who is spiteful. “You’ve got to change your evil ways, baby/Before I stop lovin’ you.” She tries to make her boyfriend jealous by associating with her friends. “You hangin’ ’round, baby/With Jean and Joan and-a who-knows-who.”

Some radio stations play edit versions of the song, cutting a few bars from the introduction, parts of the organ instrumental portion in the middle, and the coda, shortening the guitar improvisation by fading the song out earlier, part of this reason is to make it more for AM radio use, than for progressive rock use.

Lyrics:

You’ve got to change your evil ways, baby,
before I stop lovin’ you.
You’ve got to change, baby,
and every word that I say is true.
You got me runnin’ and hidin’ all over town,
you got me sneakin’ and a-peepin’ and runnin’ you down.
This can’t go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby.

When I come home, baby,
my house is dark and my pots are cold.
You’re hangin’ round, baby,
with Jean and Joan and-a who knows who.
I’m gettin’ tried of waitin’ and foolin’ around,
I’ll find somebody who won’t make me feel like a clown.
This can’t go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby.

When I come home, baby,
my house is dark and my pots are cold.
You’re hangin’ round, baby,
with Jean and Joan and-a who knows who.
I’m gettin’ tried of waitin’ and foolin’ around,
I’ll find somebody who won’t make me feel like a clown.
This can’t go on, Lord knows you got to change, baby.

Sing to the Lord a new song, the congregation of saints praise him. Israel rejoice in him that made him.The children of Zion rejoice in their King sei’n, Let them praise his name in the series, with timbrels and with harps they want to play him. 

As a father pities 
God, you also receive our on, 
About his young infants, 
So the Lord is doing all of us, 
So we childlike fear him pure. 
He knows our frailty, 
God knows we are only dust, 
Because without you nothing is done 
With all our stuff. 
Just as the grass from the rake, 
A Blum and falling leaves. 
The wind only blows over it, 
So it is no longer there, 
Drum you be our shield and light, 
And do not deceive us our hope, 
So you’re going to make it further. 
So man passes away, 
Its end, which is close to him. 
Blessed is the only stiff and strong 
Relies on you and your bounty. 

Praise the Lord for his mighty acts, praise him according to his excellent greatness! 
Everything that has breath praise the Lord Hallelujah!

Chorale (Chorus II) 

As a father doth mercy show 

Aria (Chorus I) 

God, take quiet Further now our part, 
To his own little children dear, 
Thus doth the Lord to all men, 
If pure as children we fear him. 
He sees our feeble powers, 
God knows we are but dust; 
For, lacking thee, naught shall we gain 
Of all our Endeavors synthesis. 
Just as the grass in mowing, 
Or bud and falling leaf, 
If wind but o’er it bloweth, 
It is no longer there, 
So be thou our shield and true light, 
And if our hope betray us not, 
Thou wilt Malthus henceforth help us. 
E’en so one’s life is passing, 
His end is near to him. 
Blest he Whose hope Both strong and firm 
On thee and on thy grace doth rest. 

[Ps 150:2 and 6] (Chorus I, Chorus II) 

Praise ye the Lord in all his doings, praise ye him in all his might and majesty! 

(Chorus I and II) 

All things Which do draw breath, praise ye the Lord, hallelujah!

Though heavily romanticized, it is one of the best renditions of this magnificent piece, in this one’s opinion.

Leonard Cohen: The Bucher


The Bucher, by Leonard Cohen

I came upon a butcher,
he was slaughtering a lamb,
I accused him there
with his tortured lamb.
He said, “Listen to me, child,
I am what I am
and you, you are my only son.”

Well, I found a silver needle,
I put it into my arm.
It did some good,
did some harm.
But the nights were cold
and it almost kept me warm,
how come the night is long?

I saw some flowers growing up
where that lamb fell down;
was I supposed to praise my Lord,
make some kind of joyful sound?
He said, “Listen, listen to me now,
I go round and round
and you, you are my only child.”

Do not leave me now,
do not leave me now,
I’m broken down
from a recent fall.
Blood upon my body
and ice upon my soul,
lead on, my son, it is your world.
