Voici une nouvelle contribution de Fabienne, fille de Mireille et de Louis, qui a joué pour nous un air irlandais traditionnel.

Son titre, c’est « Tabhair dom do lámh » ce qui signifie « Donne-moi ta main ». C’est un chant de paix et d’espérance.

Pour accompagner l’écoute, nous vous proposons d’admirer cette belle photo de campagne irlandaise ou de lire les paroles (en anglais) de ce chant.

Just give me your hand,
Tabhair dom do lámh.
Just give me your hand
And I’ll walk with you,
Through the streets of our land,
Through the mountains so grand.
If you give me your hand.
Just give me your hand,
And come along with me.
Will you give me your hand,
And the world it can see,
That we can be free,
In peace and harmony?
From the north to the south.
From the east to the west.
Every mountain, every valley,
Every bush and birds nest!

Just give me your hand,
Tabhair dom do lámh.
Just give me your hand,
For the world it is ours.
All the sea and the land,
To destroy or command,
If you give me your hand.
Just give me your hand,
In a gesture of peace.
Will you give me your hand
And all troubles will cease,
For the strong and the weak,
For the rich and the poor?
All peoples and creeds,
Let’s meet their needs.
With a passion, we can fashion,
A new world of love!

Chorus:
By day and night,
Through all struggle and strife,
And beside you, to guide you,
Forever, my love.
For love’s not for one,
But for both of us to share.
For our country so fair,
For our world and what’s there.
