SONG 3

Hinomoto Shoyashiki no,

Tsutome no basho wa yo no moto ya.

The origin of human beings, Shoyashiki’s

Service place is the origin of the world.

 

Fushigina Tsutome basho wa,

tare ni tanomi wa kakene domo.

Marvelous Service place

nobody did I ask to build it.

 

Mina sekai ga yoriote

deketachi kitaru ga, kore fushigi

All the world, gathering.

If the construction comes, This is miraculous.

 

Yoyo koko made tsuite kita

jitsu no tasuke wa kore kara ya

Night after night, you have followed me thus far,

True salvation is from now on.

 

Itsumo waraware soshirarete

mezurashi tasuke o suru hodoni

Always ridiculed and slandered,

marvelous salvation I will do.

 

Murini negai wa shite kurena

hitosuji gokoro ni narite koi

Unreasonable prayers, making do not come.

Resolute mind, become and come.

 

Nandemo kore kara hitosujini

Kami ni motarete yuki masuru

Whatever happens, from now on be resolute,

Lean on God, and continue to press on.

 

Yamu hodo tsurai koto wa nai

washi mo kore kara hinokishin

To fall ill seriously, painful matter it is to be.

I too from now on, will spread God’s truths

 

Koko made shinjin shita keredo

moto no Kami to wa shirananda

Until now, I have believed, although

the God of the Origin, I did not know.

 

Kono tabi arawareta 

jitsu no Kami niwa soi nai

This time it has been revealed (illness as guidance).

The True God, you are no doubt.
