故 郷(ふるさと) 


兎追いしかの山  小鮒釣りしかの川
 夢は今もめぐりて 忘れがたき故郷
 如何にいます父母 恙なしや友がき
 雨に風につけても 思い出ずる故郷
 志をはたして   いつの日にか帰らん、
 山は青き故郷   水は清き故郷



「あなたがたのために、わたしは場所を備えに行くのです。 わたしが行って、あなたがたに場所を備えたら、また来て、あなたがたをわたしのもとに迎えます。わたしのいる所に、あなたがたをもおらせるためです。」


うたいきかせん わがこころの ふるさとのうたを
 そこにあらし  たえてたたず そこによるもあらじ
 うるわしきは  わがふるさと わがしとうくによ
 したしきもの  さきにゆきて われをまちてやあらん
聖歌686番 うたいきかせん(心のふるさと)



When I went to the “respect for the elderly” celebration on the 15th, we sang a song entitled “Hometown” (Furusato).

While singing this song, I remembered my hometown. I was born in Roanoke in the state of Virginia. Roanoke, which has a population of about 100,000 people, is a very scenic place surrounded by mountains. During the summer vacation, I often swam with my friends in the clean river in Roanoke.

I left my hometown at the age of 17. Of course, it is a place of many memories for me, so each time I return to America, I go to Roanoke.

However, since I became a Christian, I now look forward to going to the hometown of my heart more than my hometown in America. In John 14:2-3 Christ said,
I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Everyone who believes in Christ
now desires a better country, that is, an heavenly country. (Hebrews 11:16)

I will sing you a song of that beautiful land,
 The faraway home of the soul,
 Where no storms ever beat on the
 glittering strand,
 While the years of eternity roll
(Home of the Soul by Philip Phillips)
