These Things Shall Never Die 這些美好不會消逝 [有聲]


Charles Dickens/查爾斯.狄更斯

The pure.the bright,the beautiful, 一切純潔的,輝煌的,美麗的,

That stirred our hearts in youth, 強烈地震撼著我們年輕的心靈的,

The impulses to wordless prayer, 推動著我們做無言的禱告的,

The dreams of love and truth; 讓我們夢想著愛與真理的;

The longing after something's lost, 在失去后為之感到珍惜的,

The spirit's yearning cry, 使靈魂深切地呼喊著的,

The striving after better hopes- 為了更美好的夢想而奮斗著的-

These things can never die. 這些美好不會消逝。

The timid hand stretched forth to aid 羞怯地伸出援助的手,

A brother in his need, 在你的弟兄需要的時候,

A kindly word in grief's dark hour 傷慟、困難的時候,一句親切的話

That proves a friend indeed ; 就足以證明朋友的真心;

The plea for mercy softly breathed, 輕聲地乞求憐憫,

When justice threatens nigh, 在審判臨近的時候,

The sorrow of a contrite heart- 懊悔的心有一種傷感--

These things shall never die. 這些美好不會消逝。

Let nothing pass for every hand 在人間傳遞溫情

Must find some work to do ; 盡你所能地去做;

Lose not a chance to waken love- 別錯失去了喚醒愛的良機-----

Be firm,and just ,and true; 為人要堅定,正直,忠誠;

So shall a light that cannot fade 因此上方照耀著你的那道光芒

Beam on thee from on high. 就不會消失。

And angel voices say to thee---你將聽到天使的聲音在說-----

These things shall never die. 這些美好不會消逝。
