From what comes from the innermost heart, ponder over it (suffering or inconvenience comes from the innermost heart to purify the mind).
Yamai no sukkiri ne wa nukeru
Kokoro wa dandan isami kuru

The mind will step by step become spirited.

Washi mo hayabaya mairitai

I too wish to quickly pray
Kono tabi mune no uchi
sumikiri mashita ga arigatai
This time, the innermost heart
has become completely pure, how grateful (when we do not act on our evil thoughts when the soul manifest suffering)
Summary: tells us how to purify our minds so our prayer become effective. Purify our minds by calming our minds and not taking action on our evil thoughts when the soul delivers sufferings or inconveniences.
