古人喜樂歌

Representative Text

古代人們心喜樂,
仰望景星作引導,
欣然歡迎它光彩,
燦爛輝煌前路照:
求主使我亦如此,
追隨景星行主道

他們歡然行遠路,
走向卑微馬廐旁,
屈膝虔誠恭敬拜,
天人唯一大君王:
求主使我亦願意,
不辭千里覓慈光.

他們敬將好禮物,
殷勤獻在馬槽前,
求使我們亦歡然,
清潔, 自由, 遠罪愆,
携帶我們珍重禮,
來向耶穌虔奉獻.

懇求救主領我衆,
奔行狹路赴窄門,
待到世事成過去,
蒙救靈魂近主身,
不再需要星光照,
有主榮耀永光明.

靈在光明天國中,
不需星月太陽光,
主是光華是喜樂,
主是永日永輝煌;
靈在天堂常歌唱,
哈利路亞頌君王.

A number of his texts were first published in Hymns Ancient and Modern (1861). Bert Polman… Go to person page >

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
