【詩歌分享】-For Her

這是一首非常好聽的英文詩歌『For Her』,也另譯作It Was For Her。

這首詩歌也有中文版喔!歌名被譯為『為祂心愛』。

 

Lyrics:

1.Don't you want to know your God?

你可知曉,你神秘密,

What's hidden in His heart for you?

自古深藏在祂心裏?

How much He longs for you to come and open up—

祂正等待你將全人向祂開啓,

To let Him in to every part

讓祂進入你的心底, 

Let Him reveal what’s on His heart

啓示祂的永遠目的,

What was the joy set before Him?

是你得悉祂所欣喜。

Chorus(副歌):

It was for her the church—His bride

爲祂心愛-召會、新婦,

It was for her, willingly He died

祂來捨身,成功救贖;

She is the joy deep in His heart

爲祂心愛-祂所切慕,

His masterpiece—His counterpart.

祂的傑作,祂的滿足!

 

2.The Lord chose you to be a part

何等奇妙!何等尊榮!

of His great plan, His work of art.

蒙主揀選,與祂同工,

What wonder! What a privilege to satisfy

成就祂的偉大經綸,滿祂情衷,享受祂的神聖豐盛,

His yearning to share all He is divine, unsearchable riches!

借祂分賜,供應無窮,

What wisdom, multifarious expressed!

将祂萬般智慧顯明。

(back to chorus 回到副歌)

 

3.As we enjoy and enter in

在這享受、滿足之中,

To all He is then we’ll begin

才略識祂諸般恩情:

To understand the feeling in his heart toward us.

我猶罪人,與祂爲敵,惡貫滿盈...祂竟親來曆盡苦痛,

What love that motivated Him to come to us, despite our sin

“變賣所有”,欣然舍命-難測的愛,

Why did He go and sell all that He had?

奇妙莫名

(back to chorus 回到副歌)

 

 

這首詩歌是由一位瑞士的姊妹譜寫而成。

因著我們極度想知道這首詩歌的背景故事,就特地聯繫這位姐妹,邀請她把整個創作過程中的經歷分享給我們。

姊妹經過禱告後寫出了她的見證讓我們翻譯成中文發佈在水深之處的網站上與大家分享,

盼望藉著這首詩歌能夠感動更多的人,認識這位神,明白祂心中的秘密。

以下是見證的本文:

我生長在一個愛主的基督徒家庭。
我小時候就發現父母親最關心的事情就是去照顧人,
我們常會遇到一些人,然後我們就會邀請他們來我們家裡坐坐,或者去拜訪他們。
而我們所遇到的大部分人和我們不太一樣,他們有著不同的文化、不同的種族,當然也有著不同的背景。
但我清楚的知道,雖然他們和我們不一樣,但神仍然愛我們每一位,
因為神揀選我們並不是看我們的身份,而是照著我們的所是來揀選我們。
 
因為這樣,我在許多不同的人身上看見基督的榮美,
也因著有同一個『人位』活在我們裡面,使我們成為一個身體。
這使我非常感動。
 
在我快要成年的時候,我才開始以很個人的方式來認識這位主。
那時候我發現祂的心意不是只要得著單獨的個人,而是盼望許多人能在愛裡被建造起來,成為召會,也就是祂的身體。
 
在2008年的夏天,我受邀為青少年的真理學校寫一首詩歌,
因著我以前也為著這個特會寫過其他的詩歌,所以我便欣然接受了。
那次真理學校的主題是『召會』,所以當我打開特會手冊的時候,我想找看看有沒有特別的標題能引起我的注意。
我向主禱告,求祂將祂的心意向我顯明,也讓祂藉著我把這首詩歌寫出來。
 
最初我在想我到底要寫什麼呢?於是我想到了幾處聖經上的話,其中有希伯來書12:2,馬太13:46,以弗所2:10、3:8、3:10、5:25。
之後有一個旋律從我心裡湧出來,我就讓這個旋律在我心中繼續流淌,
於是在我裡面不由自主地想起了主是多麼的愛祂的召會,祂又是多麼渴望我們這些人,作為神的選民,能在祂的愛裡被建造在一起。
而歌詞也就這樣開始在我的心裡傾洩而出,我的眼淚也不知不覺地流下來。
我被主的愛擊敗了,那愛不只是為我,更是為著祂的身體。
我知道主非常樂意看見我們聚在一起,這也幾乎是祂為我們而死的最主要原因。
祂已經看見那建造起來的召會,雖然尚未實現,但在神眼中這已經是一件完成的傑作,這也使祂的心歡喜。而我非常寶貝我能成為這傑作的一部分。
 
當我寫完這首詩歌之後,我感覺得到主在我裡面非常歡喜。
我將這首詩歌奉獻給祂,為祂使用,我相信會有很多的人在唱這首詩歌的時候被歌詞所感動。
願更多的人被祂對召會的愛所感動,並且能看見主的渴望就是建造祂的召會,以迎接祂的回來。
 
 
(見證原文)
I grew up in a Christian family with parents who loved the Lord. At a young age, I realized that what mattered to my parents was taking care of people. So many times we would meet people and have them over or go visit them. Many of them were not like us. They had different cultures, were of different races, and had different backgrounds. But I came to know that although they were different from us, the Lord loved each one of us and chose us as we are. 
 
I remember seeing the beauty of Christ in so many different vessels and being touched that it is a Person living in us that makes us one Body. As a teenager and even into my twenties, as I got to know the Lord more in a personal way, I began to see that His heart is not just for people individually, but for people built up in love, as the church, His Body. 
 
In the summer of 2008, I was asked to write a song for a truth school for young people. As I had written other songs for the same purpose previously, I gladly said yes. The topic for that truth school was the church. So I opened the lesson book and began to look at the different chapter titles to see if anything caught my eye. 
 
I prayed and asked the Lord that He would show me what is on His heart and that He would write this song through me. As I began to consider what to write, a few verses came to my mind. These verses were: Heb. 12:2, Matt. 13:46, and Eph. 2:10, 3:8, 3:10, 5:25. 
 
A melody came into my heart and as I let the tune develop, spontaneously I began to have a sense of how much the Lord loved the church and how much He longs for us to be built up together in love. The words just began to flow. And the tears also flowed. I was overwhelmed by the Lord's love not only for me but for each member of His body. I realized that we together are His delight and this was the whole reason that He died. He saw the built up church, a finished masterpiece, and it ravished His heart. 
 
I was so happy that I could be a part of this masterpiece.After writing the song, I had a sense that the Lord was happy. I consecrated this song to Him for His use and I feel that many have been touched while singing the words of this song. May many more be touched by His love for the church and see that the built up church is what He desires, and it is what will bring Him back.
