In this wide world, households you visit
going once, twice to save them (hinokishin).
Hiroi sekai o uchi mawari,
issen nisen de tasuke yuku.
Against any hardship I will protect you
So lean closely on the mind of God.
Fuju nakiyo ni shite yaro,
Kami no kokoro ni motare tsuke.
Looking into the minds of the world,
I find greed intermingled.
Mireba sekai no kokoro ni wa,
yoku ga majirite aru hodoni.
If you have greed, cast it away and come,
Because God cannot accept it.
Yoku ga aru nara yamete kure,
Kami no uketori deken kara.
It is the same with everyone
Ponder, and determine to follow me.
Izure no kata mo onaji koto,
shian sadamete tsuite koi.
I never compel you to go forth (go out to spread the truth/hinokishin)
Until you settle your own mind (until mind is pure).
Murini deyo to yu de nai,
kokoro sadame no tsuku made wa.
Indeed, this time all of you equally
Must ponder over it deeply.
Nakanaka kono tabi ichiretsuni,
shikkari shian o senya naran.
Even in the mountains, here and there
The service is performed.
Yama no naka demo achi kochi to,
Tenri-O no Tsutome suru
Though the service is done here
There is no one who understands the heart (we need to spread the truth by hinokishin to make people understand the heart/soul before God begins to work)
Koko de Tsutome o shite iredo,
mune no wakarita mono wa nai.
You are often invoking God (asking God by prayer to save people),
quickly go out to visit them first (spread God’s truth so prayer would be effective).
Totemo Kamina o yobidaseba,
hayaku komoto e tazune deyo.

Summary of Song 10: Talking about hinokishin of spreading God’s truth of the soul/heart. We must have a pure mind for our prayers to be effective; but we also have to spread the truth (hinokishin) before our prayers are accepted. This is why God tells us the people we want to convert by performing the Service, do not understand the soul/heart.
