Чуго ж руки поскладали?

Чуго ж руки поскладали?
Ще не час відпочивати,
Не всі ще пережитки зруйнували,
Треба цьому раду дати.

Рух уперед зараз необхіжний.
Не стоятимемо десь на краю!
Хай буде успіх плідний,
Важливо розвивати перемогу свою.

Show me just a little smile

Please do not be upset,
Show me just a little smile.
I know, we’ve never met,
But we’re on the same isle.

I’ve got a message for you:
Show me just a little smile.
Although far, you are close to me, it’s true,
So, you’re not alone; I like your kind style!

Upon God I will rely

Nub_Peak_Panorama
Incredible, how changes are fast!
Man proposes,
But God disposes.
It’s all true to the last!

No use relying on men…
You’ll pay a double price,
But won’t get a bit of your rice.
What shall I do then?

Upon God I will rely!
Being patient and sage,
Quick at learning, slow at rage,
Always in action, never too shy!

You’re not alone, believe

You’re not alone, believe,
God is always with you!
Cheer up, it’s too early to leave,
You are right, you’re strong, it’s true!

Find your niche and go on;
Persistent thou should be,
And you’ll still admire the dawn
Enjoying the daylight brighter than you thought it could be.

We are together,
You are not alone.
Even in a rainy weather
God’s love will bring us together making stronger than a stone.

Cheer up, my friend

Cheer up, my friend!
Even if now you are alone,
We may meet in the end.

But now, stand,
You are a winner,
Do understand.

There is time to be sad,
But believe in yourself,
Things are not very bad.

He who searches, will find.
God is with you!
Cheer up, my friend, you are so kind!

Любий друже, посміхнись

Johnson_Lake
Любий друже, посміхнись,
Вір, все буде ок!
На світ ширше дивись,
Швидко ті́кає клок.

Яка мета, яка ціль?
Вставай, іди до мети!
Май смак як має сіль,
Щоб світло світу піднести!
