How great is our joy

My latest project is to find and learn a few Korean songs, especially lullabys, that I can sing to Clarissa when she comes home. Obviously I don't know Korean, but I'm working on finding songs written out in Korean so that I can learn to pronounce the words. You can hear that I've added a Korean song to my blog. I LOVE that song and I'm in the process of learning to pronounce the Korean words. Here is the literal English translation:

You are born to be loved, you are being loved in your life.
You are born to be loved, you are being loved in your life.
Through our meeting, God's love that has been from the beginning comes to bear fruits.
How great is our joy becasue of you in this world!
You are born to be loved. you are being loved now.
You are born to be loved. you are being loved now.


Is there any sweeter phrase than How great is our joy because of you in this world? I've been toying with the idea of having a mural painted on the wall in Clarissa's room and if I do I think I'm going to have that phrase painted across the top in Korean. One way or another I'm going to incorporate that phrase in to her room. It's just so perfect and beautiful.

There is another Korean song that I found today that I'm completely in LOVE with, but I have no idea what the words are!! It's called "In Our Hearts" by Jinyoung Kim. It's from a Korean childrens CD and it's sung by a little girl. I don't have the slightest idea what the words are, but the song made me cry. It's just so sweet and beautiful. If you get a chance, it's worth listening to, you can get it on Itunes.

And if anyone out there speaks Korean or knows someone who does and wants to translate that song for me, I would be forever grateful and would even offer to pay you for your time. I Googled but found nothing. I really want to know the words to the song, both in English and in Korean.

Oh, and on a different topic, my blog got a cute little award, yay! I'm supposed to pass the award on to someone else, but I didn't get a chance to think about it enough today, so I'll post about it tomorrow.

Off to do some more Googling! :)

My sister-in-law's sister lives in South Korea. I sent her an e-mail... perhaps she can help.

Wendy- I can't even tell you how much your love for her comes through in this post. Clarissa is SO lucky to have a Mom like you. It's so thoughtful to learn some songs to make her more comfortable.

I think you seem like such a great Mom. Hang in there, she'll be here soon.

Love,
Caren

May sure to print out the posts about your journey for her baby book. It will be great for Clarissa to look back and read about when she is older!

Hi Wendy! You might go to this site and try to email the artist. I believe that you have to create an account, but I'm hoping that the artist would help you if you explain what you are looking for. Good luck!!
