什么是赞美诗

What is a hymn

    赞美诗是上帝在人身上作工而产生的结晶,是用真诚和美丽的言词和悦耳的曲调而谱写成的;也是人们向上帝表达的一种途径。所以唱赞美诗的时候乃是赞美上帝、敬拜上帝、向上帝祷告和祈求的时候,也是人们向上帝述说心中的隐私和感恩的时候。

    赞美诗也是西方音乐的基础,尤其是分声部的合唱形式就是来源于赞美诗的谱写结构。

    最初的赞美诗是犹太人敬拜上帝的时候,在圣殿和会堂里唱的“诗篇”。自从文艺复兴以来,赞美诗在数量上有很大的增长,尤其是一些著名作曲家所谱写了至今广泛流传的圣诗,甚至深受许多非基督徒的喜爱。

    从上世纪末,由于摇滚乐和自由派的影响,教会里出现了一批新的赞美诗,有的出版商也乘机出版牟利。但是不管如何,耶稣基督被传扬开了。

    由于版权的原因,我们不能提供赞美诗的曲谱,我们只能提供我们自己制作的赞美诗音乐和由我们的同工所唱的赞美诗,与大家分享。

 

 A hymn is generally described as prayer or praise to God, set to choral music, with beautiful lyrics and a harmonistic melody, in stanzas, and meant to be sung by a congregation. In this sense, the hymn is a blueprint for most Western music. Most popular songs have verses and a chorus, sung with a defined melody line. They take this directly from the hymn form, although not every hymn has a chorus.

 The hymn found its origin in Jewish worship as Psalms were sung in the Temple and synagogues. After the Renaissance, the number of hymns increased dramatically. Some famous composers made a number of wonderful works which are still very popular nowadays. Some have become popular among non-Christians, too.

 From the end of the last century, because of the influence of rock-and-roll, some new Christian songs have been composed. Some publishers also took the occasion to put out new song books. Anyhow, the name of our Lord Jesus Christ is proclaimed.

  Because of copyright laws, we can't provide any hymns or praise sheet music online. However, we are going to share the music we made and the songs that our volunteers sang with you.
