诗歌选粹∶主自己

主自己
Himself周瑞芳宣信(Albert B. Simpson,1843-1919)是宣道会(Christian and MissionaryAlliance)的创办人。他出生在加拿大的爱德华岛,从小受加尔文派苏格兰长老会的严格教导,也涉猎了许多经典的基督徒文学作品。马歇尔所著《救恩的福音奥秘》(GospelMystery ofSalvation)一书(1692),使15岁的宣信,成为一个对救恩和基督徒成圣,有很平衡认识的基督徒。1873年,美国肯塔基州路易市栗子街长老会聘请了宣信。他不但牧会,也参与当地的布道工作,建立了许多福音站,带领了3万左右从来不敬拜神的人。5年後,他回到纽约市,开始接触广大的移民群众,带领了大约100位意大利移民信主。神给他的异象有两方面∶一、基督的完全和以基督为中心的教义。二、人的迷失和走向灭亡的世界。这两方面的异象形成了他以基督为中心的讲道信息,也成为宣道会神学的特色──特别注重耶稣基督和救赎、医治的工作。这首圣诗的词和曲均出自宣信的亲笔。所有跟随主、走成圣道路的人,或早或晚都能体会呼应这首圣诗所要传达的,从一个地上的、属世的眼光,转化成天上的、属天的视野──正如保罗所说∶“┅┅我也将万事当作有损的,因我以认识我主基督耶稣为至宝。我为他已经丢弃万事,看作粪土,为要得著基督┅┅”。(《腓》3∶8)1.
前我要得祝福,今要得著主;前我要得感觉,今靠主话语;
前我要得恩赐,今要赐恩主;前我寻求医治,今要主自己。
Once it was the blessing, Now it is the Lord;
Once it was the feeling, Now it is His Word;
Once His gift I wanted, Now, the Giver own;
Once I sought for healing, Now Himself alone.副歌(Refrain)
永远高举耶稣,赞美主不歇;一切在耶稣里,惟他是我一切。
All in all forever, Jesus will I sing; Everything in Jesus, AndJesus everything.2.
前用己力苦试,今完全信靠;前要一半救恩,今要全得救;
前常用手拉主,今主手牵我;前常漂流无定,今锚已抛牢。
Once 'twas painful trying, Now 'tis perfect trust;
Once a half salvation, Now the uttermost;
Once 'twas ceaseless holding, Now He holds me fast;
Once 'twas constant drifting, Now my anchor's cast.3.
前我忙於打算,今专心祈求;前我常常挂虑,今有主眷佑;
前我随己所欲,今听主言语;前我不住要求,今常赞美主。
Once 'twas busy planning, Now 'tis trustful prayer;
Once 'twas anxious caring, Now He has the care;
Once 'twas what I wanted, Now what Jesus says;
Once 'twas constant asking, Now 'tis ceaseless praise.4.
前随己意做工,今做工是主;前我常利用主,今让主用我;
前我寻求能力,今要全能主;前为自己劳碌,今为主而活。
Once it was my working, His it hence shall be;
Once I tried to use Him, Now He uses me;
Once the pow'r I wanted, Now the Mighty One;
Once for self I labored, Now for Him alone.5.
前我盼望属主,今知主属我;前我灯将熄灭,今照耀辉煌。
前我等待死亡,今望主再来;我一切的盼望,安妥主幔内。
Once I hoped in Jesus, Now I know He's mine;
Once my lamps were dying, Now they brightly shine;
Once for death I waited, Now His coming hail;
And my hopes are anchored Safe within the veil.
周瑞芳,女中音,大陆事工传道人。
