You’ll Never Walk Alone

最近在預備十一月的「民數記」主日學,其中一個重點是,神與以色列人同在,經過四十年曠野的生活,神也不離不棄的保護著以色列人,摩西在申命記中回看神在這四十年的路程,他不是誇自己有多能幹,有何等的管理能力,去管治及帶領以色列,他這樣說:「我領你們在曠野四十年,你們身上的衣服並沒有穿破,腳上的鞋也沒有穿壞。 你們沒有吃餅,也沒有喝清酒濃酒。這要使你們知道,耶和華是你們的上帝。」 (申命記 29:5,6)

當神帶摩西到山上去觀看神賜給以色列人那「應許之地」,他看到的是「神同在的恩典」,他看到神在過往四十年的同在,再看這片土地,他只有感恩,因為他是信實,縱使他沒有機會進入,但神不會叫祂所應許的落空。

You’ll Never Walk Alone, 是利物浦球隊的會歌,雖然我不是她的忠實球迷,但曾幾何時,我也喜愛這首歌。

通常我聽以上首歌時,我只想起上帝與我們同在,我們就Never Walk Alone…. 不過最近發現一首由Matt Redman唱的Never Once,歌詞說的情境就是正正可以表達摩西在山上的心情:縱使有困難,但神沒有一次離開他們,祂的同在,我們永不會walk alone… 這不是神最大的應許嗎?

Never Once

Standing on this mountaintop
Looking just how far we’ve come
Knowing that for every step
You were with us

Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Kneeling on this battle ground
Seeing just how much You’ve done
Knowing every victory
Was Your power in us

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Yes, our hearts can say

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Scars and struggles on the way
But with joy our hearts can say
Never once did we ever walk alone
Carried by Your constant grace
Held within Your perfect peace
Never once, no, we never walk alone

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Every step we are breathing in Your grace
Evermore we’ll be breathing out Your praise
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
