Joy And Peace In Believing - Poem by Luo Zhihai

★ Joy and Peace in Believing
☆ by John Newton

Sometimes a light surprises
The Christian while he sings;
It is the Lord who rises
With healing in his wings:
When comforts are declining,
He grants the soul again
A season of clear shining,
To cheer it after rain.

In holy contemplation,
We sweetly then pursue
The theme of God's salvation,
And find it ever new:
Set free from present sorrow,
We cheerfully can say,
E'en let th' unknown to-morrow
Bring with it what it may.

It can bring with it nothing
But he will bear us through;
Who gives the lilies clothing,
Will clothe his people too:
Beneath the spreading heavens,
No creature but is fed;
And he who feeds the ravens,
Will give his children bread.

Though vine nor fig-tree neither
Their wonted fruit shall bear,
Though all the field should wither,
Nor flocks nor herds be there:
Yet God the same abiding,
His praise shall tune my voice;
For while in him confiding,
I cannot but rejoice.

★ 坚信——欢乐与和平

☆ [英] 约翰•牛顿 (1725 -1807) 诗
☆ [中] 罗志海 译


他是唱歌的基督教徒
时不时来一点儿惊喜
这是我冉冉上升的主< br>他翅膀带来疗效康复
当援助明显减少之时
他授予了灵魂又一个
清澈闪耀全新的 季节
还有雨后激情的欢呼

沉浸在这圣洁的沉思
我们追求甜蜜和纯真
上帝救赎世人的主题
是这样的历久而弥新
选择自由不选择悲哀
我们欢呼雀跃地诉说< br>让未知的明天带过来
极有可能发生的一切

明天可能啥都没带来
但是他 将会承诺我们
给了百合花衣衫的人
同样会穿戴他的子民
天穹下许多面包派发
养活所有的生灵生物
给乌鸦亲手喂食的他
会给他的孩子们食物

虽然无花果无 花无藤
但照常只结果不开花
虽然有的田园会凋落
但那里子民早已搬家
神光普 照啊世代永恒
我永远歌颂赞美神灵
每当我向神尽情倾诉
我自然而然欢欣鼓舞
