At Shoyashiki, the origin of mankind
This place for service is the Origin of the world.
Hinomoto Shoyashiki no,
Tsutome no basho wa yo no moto ya.
This marvelous place for service,
Nobody did I ask to build it.
Fushigina Tsutome basho wa,
tare ni tanomi wa kakene domo.
All gathering from the world,
The construction has been accomplished. How miraculous.
Mina sekai ga yoriote,
deketachi kitaru ga, kore fushigi.
Night after night, you have followed me thus far,
True salvation is from now on.
Yoyo koko made tsuite kita,
jitsu no tasuke wa kore kara ya.
Always ridiculed and slandered,
marvelous salvation I will do.
Itsumo waraware soshirarete,
mezurashi tasuke o suru hodoni.
Never come making unreasonable prayers.
Come to me with a single mind (pure mind).
Murini negai wa shite kurena,
hitosuji gokoro ni narite koi.
Whatever happens, from now on be single-hearted,
Lean on God, and press on.
Nandemo kore kara hitosujini,
Kami ni motarete yuki masuru.
There is nothing more trying than illness (illness makes people think about the soul, mind and body).
I too will perform hinokishin (spread God’s truths about soul and blessing of illness/guidance that God will perform to make aware of the soul).
Yama hodo tsurai koto wa nai,
washi mo kore kara hinokishin.
Though I have believed thus far
I did not know the God of the Origin.
Koko made shinjin shita keredo,
moto no Kami to wa shirananda.
This time it has been revealed (God’s blessing/illness of guidance/illness to people we have spread God’s truths).
No doubt you are the true God.
Kono tabi arawareta (see God’s blessings as illness),
jitsu no Kami niwa soi nai.

Summary of Song 4: Have a pure mind for everything to settle. Ponder over what your innermost heart brings forth. Do not act upon evil thoughts when suffering occurs. Then your minds will become pure. When your heart becomes pure, pray and God will begin to work.
