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.

This 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, how 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, painful matter it is to have.

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 (see God’s blessings as illness),

jitsu no Kami niwa soi nai.

This time it has been revealed.

The True God, you are no doubt.
