Дякую, Боже, за здоров’я та життя

Дякую, Боже, за здоров’я та життя
Бо коли ще живий,
Можу на добро обернути буття.
З Твоєю поміччю, кожен день – новий!

Дякую щиро!
Нехай подяка моя
Буде приємна, як миро.
Нехай Милість прибуде Твоя!

Shine your way and be the light

Shine your way
In the morning, at night, during the day.
Be the light
When there is plenty of room and when it is tight.

Useful person

You are not useless even if someone says so;
Even when someone makes it appear that way.
Do you remember how you helped that old lady to mow;
How you brightened your friend’s day?

You will hear all kind of things,
But do not listen to all.
Stay away from poisonous stings;
Focus on light and your Christian call.

Dream your dreams

Dream your dreams of the most beautiful hue
And work to make them come true.
Eat your veggies every day;
Be gentle, patient and faithfully pray.

Life is passing so fast

Life is passing so fast
Days are running ahead.
Sooner or later, we’ll feel at last.
The colour is green, but it’s changing to red.

‘Watch your time’,
I say to myself.
Life can be both honey and lime;
Time won’t lie on a shelf.

So, I’d better be quick to perform.
Trifles are cutting my line.
I’d better be wise to bear a storm.
Wisdom makes every day really fine.

Sail Day

Today in the Church we had a sail day.
It is not when we get a discount,
But an uplifting opportunity, to gather with like-minded people to pray;
To say “forgive me”, to commune, to do all things that really count.

In such a way

Live in such a way
That nothing overshadows your day
Because you skip good words to say,
Good deeds to do, a long-awaited visit to pay.

You work a lot, but remember to rest;
No need to overwork, just do your best.
In studies, prepare timely for your test.
Say prayers and with love build your nest.
