(issen nisen de) (tasuke yuku)                           7-5

In this wide world, households you visit.

Once twice, you go to save them (hinokishin).

 

(Fuju nakiyo ni) (shite yaro),   7-5

(Kami no kokoro ni) (motare tsuke).   7-5

Without uncertainty, decide to do it (hinokishin).

God’s mind, possess to hold it .

 

(Mireba sekai no) (kokoro ni wa),

(yoku ga majirite) (aru hodoni).

Looking into the world’s mind,

greed is mixed in, there is because…

 

(Yoku ga aru nara) (yamete kure)

(Kami no uketori) (deken kara).

Greed if you have, cast it away and come.

God’s acceptance will not appear (prayer not work).

 

(Izure no kata mo) (onaji koto)

shian sadamete tsuite koi.

Whatever person, it is the same.

Ponder and determine, to come.

 

(Murini deyo to) (yu de nai)

By force to go out, I do not say.

Your mind settled, until it is done.

 

Nakanaka kono tabi ichiretsuni

shikkari shian o senya naran

Indeed, this time everyone

firmly pondering must be done.

 

(Yama no naka demo) (achi kochi to)

(Tenri-O no) Tsutome suru)

Within the mountains, here and there

The service is performed.

 

(Koko de Tsutome o) (shite iredo)

(mune no wakarita) (mono wa nai)

Here the Service is done, but

Understanding the heart person, there is not (we need to spread the truth by hinokishin to make people understand the heart/soul before God begins to work).

 

(Totemo Kamina o) (yobidaseba)

(hayaku komoto e) (tazune deyo)

You are often invoking God  (asking God by prayer to save people),

quickly to the homes, go out to visit them (spread God’s truth so prayer would be effective).

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. Remember we also have to understand the soul/mune/heart to be able to convey this truth to others.  It also helps us to purify our minds so our prayer (Joyous Service) become effective in bringing people to our places of worship.
