Gabriella’s Song

 A Song to Rejoice the Heart by Helen Sjöholm
With the lyrics translated from Swedish to English
Film “As It Is In Heaven” by: Kay Pollak

It is now that my life is mine
I’ve got this short time on earth
And my longing has brought me here
All I lacked and all I gained

And yet it’s the way that I chose
My trust was far beyond words
That has shown me a little bit
Of the heaven I’ve never found

I want to feel I’m alive
All my living days
I will live as I desire
I want to feel I’m alive
Knowing I was good enough

I have never lost who I was
I have only left it sleeping
Maybe I never had a choice
Just the will to stay alive

All I want is to be happy
Being who I am
To be strong and to be free
To see day arise from night

I am here and my life is only mine
And the heaven I thought was there
I’ll discover it there somewhere
I want to feel that I’ve lived my life!

Rejoice:  to be glad; take delight (often followed by in): to rejoice in another’s happiness. And, Rejoiced, Rejoicing: to make joyful; gladden: a song to rejoice the heart.  (Source: online dictionary)

The Online dictionary describes the word “Dictionary” as a book or electronic resource that lists the words of a language (typically in alphabetical order) and gives their meaning, or gives the equivalent words in a different language, often also providing information about pronunciation, origin, and usage. e.g. “I’ll look up ‘love’ in the dictionary”

Keeping in mind there are many diverse dictionaries available to choose from. It is integral to knowing the English Language to know how  to make use of these words accurately in our day to day lives.

One of the more prominent we may have had to access at some time in our lives is The Oxford English Dictionary (OED). Some might say this is the more vastly accessed and notably a go-to for a most absolute for finding of words within the English language.

Unlike typical language dictionaries, which only define words in terms of their current uses and meanings, the OED is a historical dictionary.
