*****************************************************************************************
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind but now I see.

驚くほどの恵み、なんとやさしい響きか
私のようなならず者さえも、救ってくださる
道を失っていた私を 神は救い上げてくださり
今まで見えなかった物が、今は見いだす事が出来る


「AmazingGrace」は18世紀後半、奴隷貿易商人だったイギリス人ジョンニュートンが大嵐に出会い九死に一生を得て、信心を取り戻したときに書き残した詩です。

私はキリスト教徒ではありませんが、3.11大事地震の後、以前に増して「AmazingGrace」を心の奥深くから歌えるようになりました。
自分の生活のすぐそばにある、生命と逆行する社会構造。
それと同時に、すぐそばに当たり前にあった豊かな恵み。美しきこの世界。人の強さ優しさに、改めて気付かされました。
戦後67年、9.11同時多発テロから11年、3.11大地震から1年と半年。私たち日本人は目に見えない物へともっと目を向ける時が来たようです。

それは、自然を始めとする、全ての物に信心を向ける日本人らしさを思い出す事かもしれません。

答えはそれぞれの 生活の中に。

木歌 拝

"Amazing Grace"is a poem written by John Newton in the late 18th
century.He once was a slave trade merchant. But he regained faith when
he had a narrow escape from the fierce storm at sea. Since 311 Fukushima,we can see things that we couldn't see
before.I'm not a Christian, but I have come to sing "Amazing
Grace"with all my heart. Unconsciously I had made mistakes and spoiled
lives in the social structure.But at the same time I found this world
around us rich and beautiful. I found people have already had
kindness,strength and mind to appreciate it. For 67 years after the war,for 11years after the 911,for 1 and a
half years after the 311 Fukushima, We Japanese need to remember
Japanese-ness.
We should see more important things that are invisible.
It means, we regain the heart of faith which believes in all blessing .

The answer is in their lives.
