God of Mercy and Compassion

♪仁愛救世天主♫

God of mercy and compassion,
Look with pity upon me,
Father, let me call Thee Father,
'Tis Thy child returns to Thee.

仁愛救世天主,求你憐憫我吧!
天父,請讓我稱你為父,
現在我如蕩子回到你的懷中。

Refrain:

Jesus, Lord, I ask for mercy;
Let me not implore in vain;
All my sins, I now detest them,
Never will I sin again.

主耶穌,我祈求你的憐憫,俯聽我的哀求。
今我悔恨往罪,從此再不敢犯。

By my sins, I have deserved
Death and endless misery,
Hell with all its pains and torments,
And for all eternity.

我罪有應得,
死亡無盡的痛苦,地獄永火的折磨,
我無處可逃。

(Refrain)

By my sins, I have abandoned
Right and claim to heav'n above.
Where the saints rejoice forever
In a boundless sea of love.

因我的罪我已離棄,全心仰望向天國。
在愛的海洋裡與聖徒們得享永福。
(Refrain)

See our Savior, bleeding, dying,
On the cross of Calvary;
To that cross my sins have nail'd Him,
Yet He bleeds and dies for me.

我們的救主,被釘在十字架上,
加爾瓦略山上流盡鮮血。
是我的罪把主釘在十字架,
祂卻情願為我死。
(Refrain)

The sisters singing the song are from Our Lady of Ephesus in Gower Missouri.

唱這首歌的修女們來自密蘇里州高爾的厄弗所聖母修道院(我們通常也叫瑪利亞本篤修女會)。

I have had the opportunity of visiting the sisters on several occasions and I’ve had the chance of hearing them sing in person which is quite an honor as they sing so angelically.

我曾多次拜訪修女們,並有機會現場聆聽她們的歌聲。這對我來說簡直是莫大地榮幸,因為她們的歌聲如天使般的聲音令人陶醉。

The sisters are quite unique in that their vocation is contemplative so they spend all of their time in the convent, praying for others and living a life of silence and work, and prayer, and of course play.

修女們非常獨特,因為她們的使命是靜默,所以她們在修道院裡的所有時間都是在為他人祈禱,過著靜默、工作、祈禱的生活,當然還有休閒時光。

For these sisters, one of their ministries is the song and they spend many hours rehearsing and composing and they recorded music which I have found to be an excellent instrument in a tool for meditation and relaxation.

對這些修女來說,唱歌是她們日常祈禱生活的一部分,她們花了很多時間一起排練、作曲和錄音。我發現她們的音樂就是一種最好的工具,幫助我默想和放鬆。

The song that has been chosen for today, God of Mercy and Compassion, is a Lenten tune that has notes of reality, in the sense of the reality of our sin and weight that we carry because of it, and then on the other hand the savior who has come to save us, offers on his blood for the redemption of our sins. And that all we have to do is to come to him and bringing our sins and implore his mercy and he will grant it to us.

今天選的這首歌《仁愛救世天主》是一首四旬期歌曲,有深刻的現實意義。因為我們的罪是真實存在的,並因此而背負著沉重的負擔。另一方面,基督——來拯救我們的那位,用祂的血來贖回我們的罪。而我們每個人所要做的是去走近他,帶著我們的罪,懇求他的憐憫,他必將憐憫我們。

The music that the sisters sang speaks so well of the emotion if you will, or the movement of the time of Lent where we feel kind of this, more of dryness and then things moved into and I’m imploring of Lord:

修女們唱的這首歌,很好地表達了一種情感,如果你願意去感受的話。跟隨著四旬期的步伐,我們很多時候會感到靈性的枯竭,就會投奔上主,並向祂祈求。

Lord, Jesus, I ask for mercy.
Let me not implore in vain.
All my sins I now detest them.
Never will I sin again.
主耶穌,我祈求你的憐憫,俯聽我的哀求。
今我悔恨往罪,從此再不敢犯。
So bringing with confidence, our sins and failings to the Father to Jesus and knowing that he will forgive us and then also with that firm resolution out of love to never offend him again. This is our goal for this Holy Week.

所以懷抱信心,將我們的罪犯與失意全都帶到天父面前,交給耶穌,祂一定會赦免我們;然後下定決心,懷著這份愛,永不再得罪祂。這就是我們這個聖周的目標。

My brothers and sisters, I pray that this might be a grace given to all of us this week.

弟兄姐妹們,我祈願這首歌能在聖周裡,給大家帶來一個特殊的恩典。
