何等可爱的雀鸟。。。 How lovely a bird…




In the earlier days, I was never interested or I never had any feeling for the Psalms in the Bible. Guess it is because my spiritual life had not grown to that level then?
Until the year 1994 when I was doing my second year Bible School, was I attracted and touched by Psalms. At that time I began to compose many songs from Psalms, sometimes even 3 to 4 songs a day!
I am also very grateful to God that I could write those verses into songs without adding or subtracting one word from the verses, and hence that helped me memorize many verses as well…

Many people like to ask, of all the many songs I have written or the 16 albums I have released, which song(s)or album(s) are my favourites? Without hesitation, I would always reply: Psalms!
The biggest reason is Psalms are all the words of God, not a single bit of my own thought or word inside, that is why I feel they are very special…
And also many of them, being rather “thick-skinned”, I feel that the melodies are quite nice too, haha!

Here I am going to share with you two songs written over different period of time, one was written in 1994 “Like a Bird”, and one written this year 2011 “How Lovely”.
In fact I wrote a version of “how Lovely” too in 1994 but was never satisfied with it, until this year when I re-wrote it, only then I felt it had the “correct feel”!
And when I taught it in church, looking at the congregation’s response and how they were touched, I knew the timing had come!

造天地之耶和华的名 耶和华的名


We have escaped like a bird out of the fowler’s snare
The snare has been broken, and we have escaped
Our help is in the name of the LORD
The Maker of heaven and earth, of heaven and earth

Because you are my help
I sing in the shadow of your wings
My soul clings to you
Your right hand upholds me

"何等可愛"(How lovely)
(詞/Lyrics:詩篇Psalm 84:1-4; 曲/Music:林義忠 GT Lim – 23/06/2011)




My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord
My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God

O Lord Almighty
My King and my God
A place near Your altar
Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself
Blessed are those who dwell in Your house
They are ever praising You

How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty


忠式情歌。。。 GT’s Love Songs…


最近兴起的“例外人”事工才又让我重新“启动”我情歌方面的创意资源,再加上最近学会用iPhone“自拍自录”YouTube videos,就突发其想,决定除了上载诗歌创作之外,也可以上载一些过去所写的,或可能也会创作新的“健康情歌”来鼓励大家。因此,也设立了“忠式情歌”这个部门,希望你们都会喜欢,更希望真的会帮助到一些人。。。


Actually in my earlier days of song-writing, I had a dream to integrate the right values of the Bible and truths into “love songs”, and to “rehabilitate” songs lovers through the pop culture…
So I would attempt to write “love songs” before but my “love” is not restricted to just love between a man and a woman but also includes family, friendship, homeland etc…
But it seemed God did not open the way for me in this field, but led me to become a Gospel singer, so I did not spend too much time and effort to try to write more love songs.

Only with the recent establishment of the ministry of “The Remnant”, was my creative resource for love songs “reactivated”, and also with my recently acquired knowledge of self-recording using iPhone for YouTube videos, I had the thought of uploading apart from my Gospel compositions, my old or perhaps future love songs too to encourage all. Hence, I set up the section for “GT’s Love Songs” as well, hope you will like it and even more so, hope these songs will really help others too…

And here today, this song I am introducing to you is different from the conventional love songs that normally talk about separation, hurts, how the other party did wrong etc… here, it is promoting forgiveness, understanding, acceptance and making effort to build up true love…

“不要說” / “Don’t Say That”
詞曲/Lyrics and music: 林義忠 GT Lim

靜靜的 一句話也別說  Quietly, don’t say a word
就這樣緊握我的手  Just hold on tightly to my hand
讓我們甚麼也不要說  Let us not say anything at this moment
有時候沈默也是很好的  Sometimes silence is a good remedy too

不要說 一切都是妳的錯  Do not say it is entirely your fault
也不要說甚麼對不起我 And do not say however sorry you are to me
親愛的妳 請了解我  My dearest, do understand me
因為愛妳 我甚麼也能接受  Because I love you, I can handle all this

我不會只為了一點點的錯  I will not just over a little wrong
就讓妳這樣說要離開我  Let you say you will choose to go
我曾經對妳說過  I have told you long before
妳是否記得  Do you still remember
自從認識妳以後  Ever since I knew you
從來沒有後悔過  I have never regretted a thing

所以不要難過  So do not be upset
請相信我  Trust me please
對妳的愛 依然存留  My love for you remains
我只要妳靜靜的靠著我  All I want is for you to lean on me silently
我們還可以 從新來過  We can always start things all over again


袮还在路口等着我。。。 Still Waiting For Me At The Junction…


( Road to the Grand Canyon, USA )


GT Lim’s composition (November 14th, 1988, Christchurch, NZ.)

( Still Waiting For Me At The Junction )

但我不要停步 不想逗留,因为在路上有祢牵着我的手






Step by step I walk on this journey
There are many times I feel weary and weak
But I will not stop nor linger
For along the journey, You will be there to hold my hand

No matter how tough the journey is I will not give up
Because my Lord is always there beside me
Nothing can replace this happiness that I have
To have the Lord beside me forever

But why is it, O Lord
Each time when I reach a crossroads
When You tell me to go left, I will choose to go right
Foolishly and ignorantly I would choose to go my own way

Letting go of Your hand to walk my own direction
Why then is the journey getting darker and darker
Realizing this road leads to unending hopelessness
But to hear Your voice calling me to turn back to the right path

So I turn back with a wounded body
There ahead of me I see You stretching out Your hand
You are still there waiting for me at the junction

Before I could reach, You are already running towards me
Holding me tightly to say You love me
My tears roll down and I am too ashamed to say anything
How could You still love me so much

只要能呼吸就要珍惜-轻烟。。。 Treasure it while we still have breath – A Mist…

轻烟 A Mist


即使我是一缕轻烟    Even if I were just a mist

瞬眼间消失在人间   Vanishing from the earth in the twinkling of an eye

我依然充满感恩        I would still be very grateful

有那么一点时间       To have that little time

萦绕在祢身边           To be around you

即使我是一滴露珠   Even if I were just the morning dew

出现片刻就消失        Appearing for just a little while

我依然情愿付出            I would still be willing to offer up myself

滋润一片小小的叶子   To nourish just a little leaf

只要能呼吸就要珍惜                 Treasure it while we still have breath

见到祢就欢喜                               It is always a joy to get to see you

短暂的生命遇见祢是奇迹        Encountering you in this short life is a miracle

只要能微笑就是美丽                 A smile is always beautiful

能宽容是勇气                             It takes courage to forgive

短暂的生命要珍惜在一起        Treasure the time we have together in this short life

要爱祢                                               I  just want to love you

澳门-打破我专辑销售记录。。。 Macau- broke my album sales record…

This trip to Macau is really very special, it can be called a humbling journey…
Nobody actually knows who we are over there…

Got to know many new friends and bands there, seems that they all sing and play better than us…

下面一位是澳洲全民偶像 Guy Sebastian 的弟弟 Chris,歌声和才华不比哥哥逊色。。。
Below is Chris Sebastian, younger brother of Australian Idol Guy Sebastian, his singing and talent are not less than his brother’s…

The Remnant may not be able to compete with many of the singers and bands that night, and yet God has allowed them to soar so high and so far, this really shows us it is all the grace of God, so how can we not be humble?

And of course we brought our CDs to be sold at the table…

The sale was really unexpected too, we brought a full bag there and took a full bag home… The Remnant sold 5 CDs of theirs, and mine two…

我向上帝求一首歌,他说:为什么? I asked God for a song and He asked me: Why?

That was in Oct 16th, 1993, my first year at Tung Ling Bible College, Singapore…

Show you first my “Bible-school-student-look”, how? Very sunny huh? Haha…



The situation was such, I had always wanted to write a song that would really touch people or people would just love it upon listening, that is my own hit or “signature” song…
So I was very serious in coming to the Lord that day, I declared a fast on breakfast and lunch. You must understand, at that time it would almost kill me to fast even one meal, but for the sake of writing a very anointed song, I thought it was really worth it… don’t you agree?

There was no class that day, I stayed back in school like a good boy, not going out with friends… I hid myself in a small classroom, fasting and praying, praising and worshipping for hours, very sacrificial and committed; I felt I was quite great and really loved the Lord…
I felt proud of my humility…

Ok, show you my humble proud face… this was also taken in the Bible school…



When I thought my praise and worship and prayers were very sufficient, I told God: Look, I am very serious and have sacrificed much to draw near to You, so come, give me a very anointed song…
Then I tried very hard to write, but no matter how I did not have any inspiration… so I was getting impatient and said again: What’s wrong? I have already sacrificed so much to draw near to You, can’t You even give me a song?

At that point, I just heard the Lord softly speak to my heart, very gentle but piercing into my heart like a knife, He said: GT, why do you draw near to me?
Just that one sentence, and I knew what He meant… I knew He felt sad because I came near to Him just for my own benefit, and not really because I myself longed to be near Him. I immediately felt very ashamed of myself…

After that, I dared to ask no more, I just repented and used a song to express my repentance, and the song “When I draw near to You” below, was written at that moment…

亲近你的时候 / When I draw near to You



When I draw near to You, what is actually my feeling
O Lord, only You can see clearly
When I draw near to You, what is the motive inside
O Lord, do search and examine my heart

Let me draw near to You just because I love You
Just because I long to be with You
Let me draw near to You just because I love You
Just because I long to be with You

我开始创作诗歌的小房间。。。 The little room where I started writing songs…


October 9th, 1988 is the date I actually wrote a complete song…
“Complete” meaning a whole song with melody and lyrics, because before that I did attempt to “change” the lyrics of some other songs but was never able to write my own melody…
Then on that day, God gave me the gift of composing both lyrics and melody.
I will never forget this is all from God because I had no musical background, I knew nothing about music theory and till today, not to say music scores, I cannot even read simple notes…
That is why when sometimes people want to invite me to share and teach on writing songs, I really do not know what to talk about…
To me, to be able to write so many songs and eventually produced 16 personal albums to date is a real miracle indeed!

Below is the little room where I wrote my first song ever… in Christchurch, New Zealand…

The room was quite old when I first moved in, and I looked really square too…

新专辑终于发行了!希望你们会喜欢。。。 New album finally released! Hope you like it…

New album “Who Is This Really?” finally released, have you listened to it? Hope you do like it…
