圣诗人CD03-07《O for a thousand tongues to sing 圣名荣光歌》



词:Charles Wesley

歌词(Lyrics):

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

Jesus-the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
Tis life,and health,and peace.

See all your sins on Jesus laid:
The Lamb of God was slain;
His soul was once and offering made
For every soul of man.

He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.

He speaks;and ,listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive;
The mournful,broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.

Hear Him,ye deaf;His praise,ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind,behold your Saviour come;
And leap,ye lame for joy!

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of Thy name.

歌词:

惟愿全地万口颂唱,称赞我救赎主。
称赞我神我王荣美,救赎万世功勋。

耶稣名号能去惊恐,能驱散诸愁烦,
是众罪人耳中乐音,是生命与平安。

耶稣担当你我罪孽,作神被杀羔羊,
倾出生命成为活祭,代付世人罪债。

我主打破罪恶权势,释放凡被囚者,
他血洗净一切污秽,我靠他得洁净。

人若听信他的话语,可领受新生命,
破碎心灵欢欣颂赞,穷乏人信福音。

聋要听他哑要赞他,万口都要赞他,
瞎子得见救主降临,跛子踊跃欢呼。

宝贵恩主我的上帝,帅领我传福音。
走遍天涯直奔海角,传你荣耀圣名。



诗歌背景资料:

        查理卫斯理(Charles Wesley,1707-1788,)和华兹(Isaac Watts)是英国教会中最伟大的圣诗作者。前者被称为“诗中之圣”,后者被尊为“圣诗之父”。每一个诗人的诗歌,都有他独特点。查理的圣诗是表达他个人在主前的属灵经历和灵感。他一共写了六千多首圣诗,是福音圣诗的先锋。1738年5月21日,查理为庆祝他属灵生日周岁纪念,作了这首十八节的诗,命名为“归主周年”。同年他遇到一位莫拉维亚(Moravian)宣教士浦彼得(Peter Bohler),他对查理说:“如果我有一千个舌头,我都要用它们来赞美主。”因此查理就把这首诗名改为《万口欢唱》(O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing),并由其兄将它改为十一节。这是卫理宗派第一首流行的圣诗。另有一个传说关于这首诗名,有一天查理看完英国一场盛大的足球比赛后,当球员们列队经过街道时,万人空巷向他们喝采,当时他心中有深刻的感触,这些人向世上的虚荣喝采,而救主却少有人赞美,于是写了这首《愿我有千万口舌来赞美主!》

      查理著名的圣诗有:《神圣主爱》(Love Divine,All Loves Excelling),《天使报信》(Hark!The Herald AngelsSing),《基督耶稣今复生》(Christ the Lord is Risen Today),《奇异的爱》(And Can It Be That I Should Gain)等。

      这首圣诗有三个曲调,最常用的是德国人葛拉撒(Carl Gotthelf Glaser,1784-1829)所谱,他是一位钢琴、小提琴、及声乐教师,也是数合唱团的指挥。1839年梅逊(Lowell Mason)将此曲调重编。
