這兩個禮拜我們在講信實,本週我要來介紹〈He’s Been Faithful〉這首歌與他背後的創作者-Carol Cymbala以及他所率領的教會詩班布魯克林會幕詩班(The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir)。布魯克林會幕教會的管理者是Cymbala夫妻,由擔任牧師的丈夫辛杰米(Jim Cymbala),妻子Carol Cymbala則是詩班的領導人。

夫妻倆在70年代,從Carol的父親Rev. Clair Hutchins接手,開始管理教會,從起初少少的30人教會,其中包含9為詩班成員,到2016年統計時,已經超過16000會友,詩班人員也將近300人,其發展非常快速健全。

且更令人感動的是,教會收容了許多社會邊緣人與不同族群的人,因為教會所在地布魯克林,在70-80年代的美國是以犯罪率高而聞名,在這個許多人遠離甚至不願提起的地方,充滿了吸毒犯、愛滋病、各種罪犯以其弱勢族群,但辛杰米夫妻卻不厭其煩的張開雙手接納他們,讓他們在人間冷暖中,感到一絲微弱的溫暖。

會幕詩班至今已成立超過40年,曾得過六次葛萊美獎,也在全世界大大小小不同的地方演唱過,凡舉最知名的紐約中央公園到最平凡的小教堂,他們的歌聲都在這些地方迴繞過,至今已發行超過28張專輯,也定期都會錄製現場演唱專輯,是一所全國聞名的教堂。

He’s Been Faithful】

In my moments of fear
在我懼怕的時刻 

Through every pain every tear
經過每一分的痛苦, 每一滴的眼淚

There’s a God who’s been faithful to me
有一位神在那裡, 始終以信實對我

When my strength was all gone

When my heart had no song

Still in love He’s proved faithful to me

Every word He’s promised is true

What I thought was impossible

He’s been faithful faithful to me

Looking back His love and mercy I see

Though in my heart I have questioned
雖然在我的心裡我曾懷疑

Even failed to believe

Yet He’s been faithful faithful to me

When my heart looked away
當我的心游移,

The many times I could not pray

Still my God He was faithful to me
我的神仍舊以信實待我

The days I spent so selfishly
當我自私的過日子,

Reaching out for what pleased me
照我的歡喜來選擇;

Even then God was faithful to me
就是在那時神還是以信實待我

Every time I come back to Him
每一次我回轉向祂,

He is waiting with open arms
祂總是張開手臂等候我,

And I see once again

【1993 We Come Rejoicing】- The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir 

We come rejoicing, into His presence
Into His presence, singing Hallelu
We come rejoicing, lifting our praises
We’re singing Hallelujah, Hallelu
Hallelu, Hallelu,

We come rejoicing, singing Hallelu
Hallelu, Halleluyah,
Rejoicing, singing Hallelu
For the Joy that fills our hearts as we come singing
Praising our Redeemer, lifting our sweet song
The melody inside our heart keeps ringing
As we raise our voices once again
And sing our song to you Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelu
Hallelu, Hallelu,
We come rejoicing, singing Hallelu
Hallelu, Hallelujah,
Rejoicing, singing Hallelu

We come rejoicing, into His presence
Into His presence, singing Hallelu
We come rejoicing, lifting our praises
We’re singing Hallelujah, Hallelu
Hallelu

【1999 Total Praise】– Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir

Lord, I will lift up my eyes to the hills,
knowing my help is coming from You.
Your peace You give me
in time of the storm.
You are the source of my strength,
You are the strength of my life;
I lift up my hands in total praise to You.

Sopranos: Amen…
Tenors/Altos: Amen, Amen.
Altos: Amen…
Tenors/Sopranos: Amen, Amen.
Tenors: Amen…
Sopranos/Altos: Amen, Amen.
Sopranos: Amen…
Tenors/Altos: Amen, Amen. 

【2013 Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir】 – Battle Hymn of the Republic

該詩班在2012歐巴馬就職典禮時,為總統就職典禮上演唱《Battle Hymn of the Republic》這首歌。在此事件後估計有超過10億觀眾觀看當天的演出。詩班的成員認為,當天的演出獲得如此大的肯定,可見這扇以音樂傳福音的大門已被敞開,讓他們通過音樂向世界各地傳遞福音訊息。

Mine eyes hath seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;
His truth is marching on. 

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free;
While God is marching on.

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」!
