pre night shift musings

i may be biased cos this is douglas adam's favourite piece of music "personal "absolutely perfect" piece of music"

but it is AWESOME. googled the translation and it is awesome too. 

i now feel like buying myself the whole h2g2 and dirk gently series. but as i am now trying to finish a presentation in 2hrs and cant go out to buy it at the current moment, will listen to it over and over on repeat as douglas adams did so many yrs ago. :)

Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden, und der Tag hat sich geneiget. (Luke 24 :29)
Stay with us, for evening is coming and the day draws to an end.
Hochgelobter Gottessohn,Most praiseworthy Son of God,

Ach bleib bei uns, Herr Jesu Christ,Ah, stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ, Weil es nun Abend worden ist,since evening has now come,Dein göttlich Wort, das helle Licht,your divine word, the clear light,Laß ja bei uns auslöschen not allow to be put out amongst us.
In dieser letzt'n betrübten ZeitIn these last, troubled timesVerleih uns, Herr, Beständigkeit,grant us, Lord, constancyDass wir dein Wort und Sakramentso that your word and sacramentRein b'halten bis an unser End.we may keep purely until our end
