《馬利亞,妳可知?》(Mary, Did You Know?)

《Mary, Did You Know?》是一首我每聽也動容的歌,在CantonHymn維基平台,已載有甄燕鳴老師的大作《其實妳可知?》,兼已製作了MV,上載於YouTube。可是,我仍是很想做一個海牛的版本。本想在剛過去的聖誕前完成,奈何那時沒太多靈感,寫不出什麼來。又本來像甄氏以「其實妳可知」來譯首句,是自然不過的事,但為免拾人牙慧,我嘗試改用反問句來譯,意思也差不遠吧?!另外,我始終很想將馬利亞的名字譯進詞中,想破了頭皮,最終決定就算有些許不協音(馬利亞是洋名,些許不協音,也就許我吧!),也要填在現在的位置。而為此,我大膽地把每段第三組句子,跟第四組對調,那是改動了歌曲的高潮位,雖有不足,但我仍竭力保留著原文的意思。

由於此曲的旋律版本眾多,我決定選了這個我個人最喜愛的版本來配詞。

《馬利亞,妳可知?》

難道妳不知 懷中的小寶
有日獨履海強渡
難道妳不知 懷中的小寶
是人類萬代救贖
問可知 妳新生寶貝
來為救妳得生
噢~ 馬利亞 妳可知
妳一生因他更新
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your Baby Boy
has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered
will soon deliver you.

難道妳不知 懷中的小寶
會令瞎眼睹真光
豈不知道麼 懷中的小寶
會平定惡風駭浪
問可知 每親這寶貝
實在吻至高主
噢~ 馬利亞 妳可知
他足跡已踏諸天
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know that your Baby Boy
has walked where angels trod?
When you kissed your little Baby
you kissed the face of God?

[Oh Mary‭, ‬did you know‭?]

瞎子看到 失聰聽到
逝者復活離墓
跛足奔走 啞巴開口
頌聖羔歌不休
The blind will see. The deaf will hear.
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap.The dumb will speak
The praises of The Lamb.

難道妳不知 懷中的小寶
乃造化眾生主宰
豈不知道麼 懷中的小寶
要成萬國的君主
問可知 臂彎中寶貝
是自有永活神
噢~ 豈知他也同是
完美贖罪牲
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy
would one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your Baby Boy
is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you’re holding
is the Great, I Am.
