《稚子的禱聲》(Prayer of the Children)

已超過一年沒有做翻譯詩歌的工夫,最近受弟兄所託,為詩班的獻唱,粵譯了這首,希望藉此勉勵會眾,信仰要有對應的社會行動。

但已有詩班員呻苦說歌詞很難唸,不如唱回英文……

你可聽得到 那稚子的禱聲
藏斗室一角 暗裡屈膝哀歎抱孤影
每雙空空的眼 再也無淚水可淌
燈火中仰看 望垂聽
Can you hear the prayer of the children?
On bended knee, in the shadow of an unknown room
Empty eyes with no more tears to cry
Turning heavenward toward the light

求援助我 主啊
施恩好使我再見明天朝陽
若我今晚睡去醒不了
我靈請主接收
Crying Jesus, help me
To see the morning light-of one more day
But if I should die before I wake,
I pray my soul to take

你可感觸到 那稚子的心窩
心似家粉碎 已丟失所有那堪追
兩手伸出去 哪有什麼可握緊
惟想有天好過 道別難過
Can you feel the hearts of the children?
Aching for home, for something of their very own
Reaching hands, with nothing to hold on to,
But hope for a better day a better day

求援助我 主啊
家鄉中可與摰愛再一起過
若我迫於遠走他鄉往
寄望藏身於真心愛窩
Crying Jesus, help me
To feel the love again in my own land
But if unknown roads lead away from home,
Give me loving arms, away from harm

(Woh lah dah dah dohm
lah dah lah dah dohm
woh doh doh dah dah dah doh)

你可聽得到 那稚子的呼聲
哀懇低訴 世間分爭盼快止息
發瘋的槍砲 散播仇怨火種
腥風中的濫殺 累成血債
Can you hear the voice of the children?
Softly pleading for silence in a shattered world?
Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate,
Blood of the innocent on their hands

求援助我 主啊
施恩好使我再享陽光溫暖
信當漆黑消失
主將近賜和平新生
Crying Jesus, help me
To feel the sun again upon my face,
For when darkness clears I know you’re near,
Bringing peace again

(Dali cujete sve djecje molitive?)

聽到嗎 聽那稚子禱告
Can you hear the prayer of the children?
