王子音樂《青青草原上》













「最甘甜的泉水,是從海洋中的鹹水湧起的;阿爾卑斯山上最美麗的花,是在最荒涼崎嶇的山路上盛開的;而最尊貴的詩篇,則是在心靈極度痛苦的時候寫成的!」
《荒漠甘泉》。


甦醒
詞:黃婉嫻/洪啓元
曲:黃婉嫻

經過流淚之谷行過漫漫長路
走過悲歡起伏嘗過病痛苦楚
學會交托給主懇求我主垂顧
賜予恩惠賜予秋雨之福

雖然不能言語不能行走自如
我的心仍歡唱頌讚造我的主
我靈因祂甦醒我心因祂滿足
我仍樂意肉身安然居住

張開眼睛即使我眼光模糊
有主同在我也就豐富滿足
我想開口説話聲音卻不能發出
主明瞭我發自内心的傾訴

我雖軟弱懇求主堅立扶持
我信不足懇求主施恩幫助
我雖失去方向但有主引領
行過死蔭幽谷我也不在乎

Ivy has underlying Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (PPT) with multiple cerebral infarct, she is functionally impaired due to the illness and bedbound ever since the illness. This is a prayer for Ivy to accept whatso she will be like after her come round with a thankful heart. The idea was from lament psalm, namely to express trust in God in the face of any evidence of the crisis. To petition for God to intervene, to an affirmation of trust in God even though there has no immediate deliverance from the crisis. I wish to move Ivy from hurt to joy, from darkness to light, from desperation to hope. I believe the movement from hurt to joy is profoundly a spiritual experience. Even Ivy may not receive physical deliverance from the crisis, but her life is always in the gracious hands of God -- memory, words, countenance and direction. I wish to unveil more of the face of our Lord shining upon the suffering faces.
