"Talitha Koum"這首曲特別為此次福傳之旅而作,靈感來自瑪爾谷福音(谷5:21-23,40-42)

一個會堂長,名叫雅依洛,他懇求耶穌到他家去救活他十二歲的女兒。耶穌帶著小女孩的父母,及同他在一起的人,進了小女孩所在的地方。他拿起小女孩的手,對她說:「Talitha Koum」,意思是「女孩子,我命你起來!」那女孩就立即起來行走。

Talitha(女孩) Koum(起來)是兩個阿拉美語(阿拉美語是耶穌時代巴勒斯坦的通用語言)瑪爾谷福音保留耶穌原用的這兩個字,沒有將之譯成希臘文。
這首曲建構於這兩個關鍵字,「孩子,起來吧!」耶穌正邀請我們在生活中站起來,向喜樂的生活、完美的生命進發。







 

The song "Talitha Koum, expressly composed for this missionary journey, takes its inspiration from the Gospel of Mark (Mk5: 21-23; 40-42), which relates how a Synagogue official named Jairus, came to Jesus and implored Him to go to his house and save her 12 year old daughter from death. Jesus went to his house, took along the child's father and mother and His own companions, and entered the room where the dead child was.
Jesus taking the child by the hand, said to her, "Talitha Koum", which translated means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!"). The child rose up and lived.

Talitha (little girl) Koum (rise up) are two Aramaic words (Aramaic was the common language in Palestine at the time of Jesus). The Gospel of Mark keeps these two words in its original form as Jesus must have said them, without translating them into Greek.

The song is structured around these two key words and develops the theme of "rise up my child!". Jesus is inviting us to rise up from our way of living, and walk towards the fullness of Life, the true joyof living.


歌詞   Lyrics
Chorus: Ta-li-tha-koum

Ta-li-tha-koum

Ta-li-tha-koum

Rise up my child

連結每顆心哼出歌韻
Ta-li-tha-koum
同歸於這家
遼闊的天空襯著白雲
這美好家園全也屬你

原來芬芳的花於心堬惟
清幽的草鋪滿了長路
孩子的心窩跟祂舞蹈唱歌

孩子今天已不需驚怕
換上歡欣的心起舞
求望共你遨翔再自由高飛

Rise up my child

I hold your hand, I call your name,
Talitha-Koum,
come back to your home.
Is there a sky without a bird,
Is there a home without you.

Tell me is there a field without a flower,
Is there a child without a smile,
And tell me is there a world without your love.

Rise up and live your day,
Your life, your soul are so precious to me,
The light of dawn has come,
Rise up and be free

Rise up and live your day,
Live eternally, be free.
