Be friend to God

Be slave to God and not to men.
Fear God on all your ways.
Be not afraid of people now or then.
May God prolong your days!

May they be filled with health and joy!
Fear God and not men to achieve your goal:
You have a smart head, employ!
Keep straight your back and sound your soul!

Oh that men would praise the Lord

Sunburst Lake mit Mt. Assiniboine
Praise the Lord for He is Gracious!
He takes your foot out of hardships and puts it in a place which is spacious.
Praise the Lord and sacrifice the sacrifice of thanksgiving!
Let your praise be living!

Хай славиться ім’я Твоє повіки!

Хай славиться ім’я Твоє повіки!
Алилуя! Він з океану виточує ріки;
Бог наш перетворює пустелю на оазу;
А струмок нечестивих засихає одразу.

Як величні діла Твої, Боже. Так!
Розкаяне серце квітне і то є знак:
Безмежна Твоя милість, безкрая любов!
Від повноти серця, що Ти нам дав, заспіваємо знов.

Восхвалемо Тебе, Благий, за все.
В молитві, у пісні, у праці, в ділах; і немовля свій сміх піднесе.
І все нам під силу, коли Ти з нами!
Як Блажений Ти Боже, наділив Ти нас усіма дарами!

Give thanks

Give thanks to the Lord in any season –
For this, you do not need a reason,
But even if it were so, think with how much you’ve been bestowed!
You’ve been forgiven all that you owed.

So, cheer up – you have a bright head!
You have an awesome stature.
Enough being sad, smile instead!
You love God and your neighbour,
You will certainly win with your kind nature!
You will thrive in your labour!
