My Beloved Taiwan 心愛的台灣

Lyric by Dr. George Mackay from his memoirs From Far Formosa, a missionary from Canada in 1872. Dr.Mackay established a new educational system, esp. for female education. He also brought in new western civilization , new plants and medical sources. During his 29 years missionary work Dr. Mackay founded over 60 churches. Approximately half million people have received or affected by his programs though his missionary stay in Taiwan. He was buried in Taiwan.

歌詞出自馬偕台灣回憶錄From Far Formosa。最早的教育學府—牛津學堂,是馬偕自1872年由加拿大來台宣教中,對於台灣人民最大的貢獻;一八七二年三月九日,加拿大基督長老教會宣教師馬偕叡理(Rev.Dr.George Leslie Mackay) 登陸淡水,作佈教、教育及醫療工作。擇定淡水砲台埔小山丘上,興建校舍,並親自規劃監工,1882年校舍建成後,為感念其家鄉安大略省牛津郡(Oxford County)居民的捐助,遂命名Oxford College,中文名為:理學堂大書院,後人稱之為牛津學堂。馬偕過世後葬於台灣。
