在聖經中,耶穌總是對著跟隨他的人說「背上你的十字架來跟從我。」(馬太福音16:24)每個人都有一個屬於自己的獨特十字架,別人拿不動你的十字架,你也無法扛起其他人的十字架,從不例外。而本週我們就要介紹素有「福音音樂之母」(Mother of Gospel music) 以及「這世界上最會說福音故事的說書人」(The World’s Greatest Gospel Story Teller)這兩個頭銜的Dorothy Norwood,來聽聽他是如何一路背起自己的十字架!

Dorothy Norwood出生於1935年,八歲就開始跟家族一起歌唱跟巡迴演出,成年後他獨自闖蕩芝加哥,在早期他是The Caravans的成員,途中也許多歌手合作,直到1964年選擇單飛,在他將近80年的事業生涯中,他出了50多張專輯,當中有5張金牌唱片,目前Dorothy成立了自己的唱片公司Dorothy Norwood Music Group持續他的音樂事工。

現在就讓我們來認識「福音音樂之母」Dorothy Norwood,傳奇且希奇的人生。 

歌曲介紹1953年與傳奇福音團體 The Caravans- 合作的 經典詩歌The Old Rugged Cross

Norwood 21歲 加入 The Caravans 的第一首代表作 –The Caravans-Standing In The Need of Prayer

It‘s me, it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer 

It’s me, it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer

Not my mother Not my father
But it’s me oh Lord

Standing in the need of prayer
Not my sister Not brother

But it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer

It’s me, it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer

It’s me, it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer

1963 自組合唱團 Dorothy Norwood Singers 第一張專輯 Dorothy Norwood Singers-Johnny & Jesus

1981 首次入圍葛萊美奬最佳福音歌曲 Dorothy Norwood – God Can

Verse 1: There are things that man can do
He can sail through the air in his plane
Though man can do a lot of things, man is limited

Now tell me,
Can you catch the wind?
Can you make the world spin?
Can you pull the sun down?
Can you raise Man from the ground?
Ooh No, but I know who can
Choir: God can, God can God can, God can

Verse 2:
There is a master, for everything
For every kingdom, there’s a king
Though man can do, just about anything
God is still the Master, and He is always gonna be the King

Now tell me,
Choir: Can you catch the wind?
Can you make the world spin?
Can you pull the sun down?
Can you raise Man from the ground?
Ooh No,
Lead: But I know who can
Choir: God can, God can Ooh, Ooh

Verse 3:
Listen, there was a Man that came to this earth over two
thousand years ago
He was the closest thing, the closest thing to God I know
Listen, this Man had power I said, this Man had power
More power than any other man Let me tell you what He can do
He can heal the sick, with just the touch of His hand
This man could…

Choir:
Walk on the water
Take water and make wine
Take five loaves of bread and two fish and feed thousands!
Ooh, He had the power of God in his hand God can, God can
(repeat)

本週主題曲 1997 Hattie B’s daughter Dorothy Norwood – Near The Cross

Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There a precious fountain
Free to all, a healing stream
Flows from Calvary’s mountain.
In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river. 

Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star
Sheds its beams around me.
In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;

Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.
Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadows o’er me. 

In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.
Near the cross I’ll watch and wait
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand,
Just beyond the river. 

In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river

我靈歌唱(每週五晚上10點播出)

帶您進入黑人靈魂福音歌曲的世界 主持:堯堯

黑人在美國曾淪為奴隸兩三百年,他們只能在週日的下午帶著一把吉他來到密西西比河畔,透過憂鬱的曲調抒發他們對生活的不滿以及對家鄉的思念,這就是「藍調」音樂的起源。當這些人有了信仰以及對永恆的盼望,從心靈的深處向上帝吶喊出的生命祈禱,又造就出了充滿穿透力的靈魂福音歌曲。在這個節目裡堯堯老師要帶我們進入一個對華人來說很陌生的音樂領域「黑人靈歌」的世界,喜歡靈魂福音歌曲的朋友們,千萬不要錯過,每週五晚上10點鐘的「我靈歌唱」!
