Happy birthday, Enrique

July 27, 2021

It’s the birthday of Spanish pianist and composer Enrique Granados (1867-1916). Granados made player piano music rolls of some of his compositions, which is how we are able to hear the composer himself play this excerpt from Danzas Españolas

Rise, oh fathers, rise, let’s go meet ’em in the skies,
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.

Oh I really do believe that just before the end of time
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.

Rise, oh mothers, rise, let’s go meet ’em in the skies,
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.

Oh I really do believe that just before the end of time,
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.

No time to tarry here, no time to wait for you,
No time to tarry here, for I’m on my journey home.

Brothers, oh, fare ye well, for I’m on my journey home.
Sisters, oh, fare ye well, for I’m on my journey home.

No time to tarry here, no time to wait for you,
No time to tarry here, for I’m on my journey home.

Oh I really do believe that just before the end of time
We will hear the angels singing in that morning.

English translation:

God be with you till we meet again,
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you,
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again,
’Neath His wings protecting hide you,
Daily manna still provide you,
God be with you till we meet again.
Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.
God be with you till we meet again,
When life’s perils thick confound you,
Put His arms unfailing round you,
God be with you till we meet again.
