Actually this song is such an oldie, but sometime ago, the preacher was saying when this song was first sung, everyone thought that it is referring to love letters, or something regarding the relationship between the man and the woman.

The fact is, the person who wrote the lyrics 梁弘志 actually became a Christian prior to the time when he wrote the lyrics. And fact, the “you” in the title actually refers to the bible.

That is when I took a closer look at the lyrics and wonder, whether one day as I am reading the bible, would I derive as much joy as how the lyrics express it. But pardon my weak translation here, as I think the lyrics are very poetic and are difficult to translate

As I was reading you a thousand times, I will never feel weary
Whenever I am reading you, I felt that its liken to the time of March
In this seasons of Romance
And this intoxicating Psalm
Ohhhh….

As I was reading you a thousand times, I will never feel weary
I can feel the springtime whenever I am reading you
Such a classic that is to my delight
With such beautiful psalms
Ohh..

Between the sequence of your verses
You have lock my affections
Between your lips
Retained all the Oath you have given to me
Every movement of yours
Guided all my sight
You are my psalm

Reading you a thousand times, I will never feel weary
Reading you a thousand times
Will not feel weary
Reading you….
