《恩主似慈父看顧》(Little Ones of God Are We 我為孩童歌)

又有一首《我為孩童歌》是我兒時常唱的詩歌,此詩的中文歌詞可算是不協音的代表作,原來要重譯它竟是非常困難,今次花了差不多一星期也譯得不太好,且貼出來讓朋友們評一評。

《恩主似慈父看顧》

Words by Hezekiah Butterworth
Music by George Frederick Root
粵譯:海牛

參:普天頌讚542

恩主似慈父看顧
讓我來高歌頌讚
屈膝禱告願我神
導我每步行
Little ones of God are we,
Therefore we His praise repeat;
We will pray, on bended knee,
Him to guide our feet.
(副歌)

副歌:領著我不致走差
   親手牽我到天家
   恩福滿途我嚮往
   願我主導航
   Lead us, lead us, lest we stray,
   Lead us, lead us, by Thy hand,
   Lead us in the blessed way,
   To the better land.

恩主似慈牧看顧
導我來翻山越嶺
清溪草場享安歇
護我不損折
Little lambs of God are we;
He, the shepherd, leads His sheep,
And the lambs most tenderly
He from harm will keep.
(副歌)

局長恨惡屎卻愛屙屎的陸客

包容當然不等如縱容,但把人和事(屎)二分,說什麼「對人應該抱有包容的態度,對不當的事則不應該予以縱容」這等廢話,足見民賤聯出身的蘇錦樑確是個耶撚準沒錯!要知道,有些耶撚最愛講的,正是什麼上帝恨惡罪卻愛罪人之類的混亂真理的論述;那是否說,我們應包容週街屙屎的陸客,但絕不縱容他們所屙的那坨屎?那麼就叫執法人員發一張告票給那坨屎好嗎?

另外,為何市民拍陸客週街屙屎有問題而香港公安拍市民遊行就沒問題?先陣子,那個幫港滅聲什麼的還說要收集參與佔中者的相片放上網,不見局長叫周融這契弟包容一下?

《主是愛歌》(Praise Him, Praise Him, All Ye Little Children)

有人說,《普天頌讚》裡的詩歌歌詞都很古老難明,但有一首小時候常唱的聖詩《主是愛歌》是例外,簡單得不得了,但若用粵語唱,很不協音,試改如下:

《主是愛歌》

齊齊頌讚!主的心肝寶貝,讚美主!大慈愛!
齊齊謝恩!主的心肝寶貝,謝謝主!主是愛!

人人下拜!主的心肝寶貝,敬拜主!大慈愛!
人人熱愛!主的心肝寶貝,敬愛主!主是愛!

Praise Him, praise Him, all ye little children,
God is love, God is love;
Praise Him, praise Him, all ye little children,
God is love, God is love.

Love Him, love Him, all ye little children,
God is love, God is love;
Love Him, love Him, all ye little children,
God is love, God is love.

Thank Him, thank Him, all ye little children,
God is love, God is love;
Thank Him, thank Him, all ye little children,
God is love, God is love.

原詞有三節,普天頌讚把之併作兩節,在重譯時,也跟普頌的作法。
