SONG 8

In this wide world in the countries,

Are there no stones or standing trees (new members)?

Hiroi sekai ya kuni naka ni,

ishi mo tachiki mo nai kai na.

 

Though I carry out marvelous construction,

I never ask a favor of anyone.

Fushigina fushin o suru naredo,

Tare ni tanomi wa kaken dena.

All coming from the world step by step,

It will be accomplished.

Mina dandan to sekai kara,

Yorikita koto nara dekete kuru.

 

Forgetting a greedy mind,

Set out to determine your mind firmly (to not act on evil thoughts).

Yoku no kokoro o uchiwasure,

tokuto kokoro o sadame kake.

 

However long one may hesitate to determine,

It will never be accomplished by yourselves (need God’s help).

Itsumade miawase itaru tomo,

Uchi kara suru no ya nai hodoni.

 

Never hasten so thoughtlessly.

From what comes from your innermost heart, ponder.

Musho yatara ni sekikomu na,

mune no uchi yori shian seyo.

 

When your minds becomes clear (from pondering what comes from the heart),

begin the construction quickly (spread the truth (hinokishin and pray with the Joyous Service).

Nanika kokoro ga sunda nara,

hayaku fushin ni torikakare.

 

Having (God) entered the mountains,

I have already seen the stones and standing trees (new members).

Yama no naka e to irikonde,

ishi mo tachiki mo mite oita.

 

Whether to cut this tree or take that stone

It depends on the heart of God.

Kono ki kiro ka ano ishi to,

Omoedo Kami no mune shidai.

 

This time, the innermost hearts of all equally

Have become completely purified (God will now begin to work).

Kono tabi ichiretsuni,

sumikiri mashita ga mune no uchi.
