圣诗人CD01-11《I Know Him Whom I Have Believed 我知所信的是谁》



词/曲:James McGranahan

歌词(Lyrics):

I know not why God's wondrous grace,
To me hath been made known;
Nor why-unworthy as I am ,
He claimed me for his own.


I know not how this saving faith,
To me He did impart;
Nor how believing in His Word,
Wrought peace within my heart.

I know not how the Spirit moves,
Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word,
Creating faith in Him.

I know not what of good or ill,
May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days,
Before His face I see.

I know not when my Lord may come;
I know not how,not where:
If I shall pass the vale of death,
Or meet Him in the air.

副歌(Refrain):

But I know whom I have believed,
And am persuaded that He is able,
To keep that which I've committed,
Unto him against that day.


歌词:

不知何以上主恩惠,待我如此丰饶,
不堪如我亦蒙选召,主恩何等奇妙。

不知何以因信得救,此恩向我成就,
不知何以一信主话,满心平安无忧。

不知如何圣灵感动,使人自觉罪污,
由圣经中显明耶稣,引人信靠救主。

不知明日将遇何事,前途或顺或逆,
但主慈爱永不更易, 主必抚养到底。

不知我主何时再临,如何与主相逢?
或将经过死荫幽谷,或遇主于空中。

副歌:

惟我深知,所信的是谁,
并且也深信,他必定能够,
保守我所交付他的,
都全备直到那日。


诗歌背景:

​​        麦格纳汉是多产的圣诗人,既写词,也谱曲,是福音诗歌奠基人之一。兼有苏格兰与爱尔兰血统,一八四零年生于美国宾州。他自幼有嘹喨的歌喉,19岁已是当地知名的音乐教师并组织了他第一个合唱团,有人给麦格纳汉建议,以他的禀赋,若再加以歌剧训练,势必名利双收;而他的挚友布立思则不断地劝他,将他美妙的歌声为主使用,布立思在遇难前一周,还写信劝他考虑此事。布立思夫妇遇难后,麦格纳汉旋即赶去料理他们后事,在那出事地点,他首次和惠特相遇,而惠特直觉地感到,“这是布立思所拣选的继承人”。他们在同返芝加哥途中,一起讨论,同心祷告,最后麦格纳汉决定终身以诗歌事奉神。1877年与惠特进一步合作,组织布道团,旅行美国各地并前往英国,在聚会中领唱;他还最早组织完全是男声的唱诗班,曾与孙奇、鲁特、斯特宾斯等人合编出版多本福音诗歌乐谱。
