Твоє Свято

Життя – великий дар,
Хай що, а ти йди!
Шкода, не може буть без хмар,
Але дощ – не назавжди́.

Твоя посмішка сяє кришталевою росою;
Щире серце знає шлях:
Божий Янгол завжди з тобою,
Навіть в далеких краях.

When I close my eyes

When I close my eyes,
I see you, baby.
I won’t tell lies.
Am I crazy? Maybe.

I don’t wonna lose you.
Hearing everywhere your voice:
In a gentle wind, in a kitten’s mew;
You are my choice.

Even if I go away,
I will miss you again.
If I am not able to stay,
I will always miss you then…

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!

Have you ever seen a sunrise

20161106_073640
Have you ever seen a sunrise
Or the azure above
Which is often called just skies?
Have you ever been in love?

Or haven’t you got time enough?
Vanity of vanities, too much of it
And the sea of life is so rough.
Bustle can so badly hit…

But I don’t say forget all, throw away.
Just let love inside, right into your heart.
Mind your way.
