The primary children of Mwene-Ditu (mwhen-knee dee-too) send their love and best wishes by singing to you. It got me started taking video of LDS (Mormon) children living in different villages singing different songs well known in the LDS church. Some are primary songs and some are hymns, all of which are well known and memorized by the children. Those of you who teach primary may wish to tape your own primary singing a song in their native language and post to you tube. If you email me or comment here, I’ll link to the video, and we’ll get a worldwide song extravaganza going! It doesn’t have to be an LDS group – let’s get the whole world singing religious songs.
Bien Choisir (Choose the Right)
Bien choisir dans le temps que Dieu nous donne
Et savoir obéir à l’Ésprit:
C’est ainsi que la lumière environne
Ceux dont le cœur aura choisi la vie
Bien choisir, bien choisir
C’est là le chemin qui nous est tracé.
Sans faiblir, bien choisir,
Pour hériter de Dieu l’éternité.
In English, the words are different – as in all translated songs: Choose the right when a choice is placed before you. In the right the Holy Spirit guides; And its light is forever shining o’er you, When in the right your heart confides. Choose the right! choose the right! Let wisdom mark the way before. In its light, choose the right! And God will bless you evermore. (Link to Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing Choose the Right)
