這次要跟大家介紹一個歌手和他彈唱的幾首好歌

他的名字是Coffey
昨天在PTT吉他板上看到有人貼了一個Youtube的連結
如果你有在聽英文詩歌 你一定會很熟悉

Open the Eyes of My Heart


Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You
(X2)

Chorus:
To see You high and lifted up
Shinin' in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

Holy, holy, holy
I want to see you

影片的一開始 他說 就像這首歌的歌名
求神打開我們心裡的眼睛 使我們知道拯救靈魂的方法
有人傳講財富 有人傳"這個那個"(編按:指什麼?)
但我們是要贏得靈魂的 it's all about!!
喔喔 我對他整個加分呀 (大心)

接著 繼續聽了另一首
是Trading My Sorrows -Darrell Evans (又叫作"Yes, Lord song")

I'm trading my sorrow
I'm trading my shame
I'm laying it down for the joy of the Lord
(X2)
Chorus:
And we say yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord
Yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord Amen

I'm pressed but not crushed persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
I'm blessed beyond the curse for his promise will endure
And his joy's gonna be my strength

Though the sorrow may last for the night
His joy comes with the morning


很棒的兩首歌吧


根據Godtube上關於他生平的介紹:
他在德州的五旬節教會長大 10歲受洗
但16歲才真正接受耶穌成為他生命的主
他在國高中時就參與服事 在同輩間傳福音 也看見許多人得救
18歲時他參加監獄事工 在當中用唱的
對許多不斷尋覓 想找到生命中第二次機會並基督裡的新生命的受刑人來傳講福音
他走過遍及7個洲的15個監獄 而這只是他滿19以前的事

Coffey拒絕了許多公費的州立籃球大學名校 (編按:意思是他籃球很強?)
到了另一間大學(TPU)取得了神學的學位
在那裡接觸了吉他 也從那天(2002-)後再也沒放下過
他開始學習Vineyard(葡萄園)的敬拜和傳統詩歌 展露出他的天份
(編按:太純正了我的媽啊 我起雞皮疙瘩了)
在宿舍裡又彈又唱 然後查經班開始拜託他在小組裡帶領敬拜
並受邀在一些公開的場合唱一些歌曲
有次是在一場籃球比賽演唱國歌 然後跳球 (編按:他跳還別人跳!?)

融合了傳統詩歌、現代的敬拜和他想帶出的福音內涵
使敬拜對會眾來是穩固且有意義的(valid and relevant)
後來也拿到西班牙文的實際神學(practical-theology)學位
經過幾次搬遷 也在教會中有過許多(大部分是音樂上)的服事

他不僅是受過神學教育、拿到學位 更是用一顆真誠的心來接觸人



他應該發過三張專輯了 iTune上也應該找得到他的歌
anyway最後再給大家一首非常impressed me的歌
改編自Rihanna(雷哈娜)的Umbrella<(小雨傘)
聽過的人應該都會會心一笑 因為這把傘
變成了耶穌為我們的罪死在十字架上三天後復活的信息喔!!!!!!

歌詞:
Lyrics for "Umbrella" (Christ Mix)
I gave you my heart,
In exchange for a brand new start
Lord then you made me clean,
And you set me apart.
See I was in the dark, you're the bright and morning star
And oh with your amazing grace,
You put a smile upon my face because,

When the Son died, he didn’t die forever,
Put him in a tomb and 3 days later,
He died on the cross and he rose again
Dipped me in his blood and
He washed away my sins, sins, sins…eh ..eh...eh
Thank the Lord I’m born again in in...eh...eh…eh
Her daddy been gone, her mama left when she was 7
Stuck with relatives she didn’t know is there a heaven.
I wish I could grow wings and fly away from this place,
Is what she told me, wiping tears from her face.
But every time you cried the Lord felt your pain,
Put a fist in the air if you ready for change.
The race is not given to the swift or to the strong,
You got to endure, I’m telling you to hold on.

酷吧 :D



最後編按:
1.噢生平那邊我翻得好累…但我想我的英文又進步了XD
2.為什麼他在台灣不紅?
3.希望他可以善始也善終~
