美国语文第五册 第332期:妈妈的《圣经》

宣布工夫:2018-05-10内容泉源:VOA英语学习网

This book is all that’s left me now,

这本《圣经》,妈妈留下的独一留念。

Tears will unbidden start,

每当瞥见,不由得泪水扑簌,

With faltering lip and throbbing brow

双唇嗫嚅,苦楚的心在悸动,

I press it to my heart.

爱惜万分,我将它捧在心窝。

For many generations past

追溯沧桑光阴,不胜回顾,

Here is our family tree;

巨大家庭树,明晰的家属头绪,

My mother’s hands this Bible clasped,

相片上,妈妈将《圣经》紧握,

She, dying, gave it me.

她永久分开了,将书留给我。

Ah! well do I remember those

啊!我明晰记得,

Whose names these records bear;

《圣经》上,那多鲜活过来,

Who round the hearthstone used to close,

壁炉边,家庭聚集的气味,

After the evening prayer,

晚间祈祷后,每天热烈话题,

And speak of what these pages said

报纸上,时势奇闻轶事,

In tones my heart would thrill!

历历如目,触手可及的震撼。

Though they are with the silent dead,

虽然,亲人们早已在世,

Here are they living still!

宛如昨天,繁华特殊的场景。

My father read this holy book

爸爸高声朗诵,这本《圣经》,

To brothers, sisters, dear;

兄弟姐妹,依偎他的身旁,

How calm was my poor mother’s look,

窘困中的妈妈,神色飞扬,

Who loved God’s word to hear!

急迫期盼,倾听天主声响,

Her angel face,—I see it yet!

流水的日子,簇拥而至,

What thronging memories come!

万家灯火,难以消逝的影象,

Again that little group is met

存亡相逢,

Within the walls of home!

我们再度相遇。

Thou truest friend man ever knew,

《圣经》,我最信托的冤家,

Thy constancy I’ve tried;

那长期的忠贞不渝。

When all were false, I found thee true,

即使天下,充溢谎话敲诈,

My counselor and guide.

独一朴拙的你,引我前行。

The mines of earth no treasures give

即使天下,一切金矿,

That could this volume buy;

亦无法,替换你的贵重。

In teaching me the way to live,

天主,它教我怎样处世豪迈,

It taught me how to die.

《圣经》,它教我怎样直面熟去世。
