《仁愛不忍棄我的愛》(O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go)

O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go 是一首非常美麗的聖詩,不論是旋律抑或是歌詞,都是動人非常,就是劉廷芳博士的中譯詞,也是絕美的,是我其中一首至愛的金曲。

之前既試過把數首詩歌的舊詞按粵韻重新譜曲,且也拿這歌來重譜看看,旋律當然難跟原裝的相比,效果不算非常滿意,但也是一次很好的練習和功課。

英詞:George Matheson
中譯:劉廷芳(adopted from 普天頌讚)
譜曲:海牛

仁愛 不忍棄我的愛
疲勞靈魂因祢得安
虛逝殘生我今歸獻
願如潦水流入淵洋
翻作壯闊波瀾
O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee.
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

真光 照我全程的光
將殘的燈移來就祢
我心復得所失之光
在祢陽光和煦之中
便覺明亮輝煌
O Light that follows all my way,
I yield my flick’ring torch to thee.
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

歡樂 祢來苦中找我
我心豈忍將祢拒絕
我在雨中蹤跡彩虹
知道應許不會落空
天明不再有淚
O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee.
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

使我抬頭的十字架
不皈依祢我復何往
生世榮華終歸塵土
埋葬了讓紅花開遍
生命永無止息
O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee.
I lay in dust, life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red,
Life that shall endless be.
