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.

God forgives trespasses

God forgives trespasses
When we sincerely regret and accordingly act.
Therefore, do not look back as the time passes –
Move on with wisdom, humbleness, courage and tact.

Father is so Kind to me

Father is so Kind to me,
He gives me strength,
He makes me sure that I will never flee,
No matter what is the length.

I call for Him and the Father hears.
Hallowed be His Name!
He delivers me from all my fears.
Unsurpassed is His fame!

Our Father in heaven is Kind,
He is Loving and Gracious.
He forgives our debts and no one will find.
Thank Thee, Father, for our freedom is spacious!

Where there is God, there is victory

Where there is love which is true,
There is truth and God indeed.
Where there is God, there is victory all the way through.
It is in word, in thought and in deed.

Only make sure that your love is not blind,
But patient, forgiving, orderly truly.
On God, your neighbour, the truth set your mind;
With that you will win, you will overcome duly.

L’amour est patient,
Il est plein de bonté.
Ce secret est ouvert aux enfants.
Même le soleil a besoin d’amour pour monter.

L’amour n’est point envieux;
L’amour ne se vante point.
Qui peut dire mieux?
C’est vrai et beau au moins.

L’amour ne s’enfle point d’orgueil,
Il ne fait rien de malhonnête.
L’amour est frai et pur comme une feuille
Et aussi doux comme une sonnette.

Il ne cherche point son intérêt,
Il ne s’irrite point.
Regarde, il faut être prêt,
L’amour est là, ici, pas loin.

Il ne soupçon point le mal,
Il ne se réjouit point de l’injustice…
Écoute, c’est pas une chose banale.
Les mots sont divers et l’idée est lisse.

…mais il se réjouit de la vérité;
Il excuse tout, il croit tout.
L’amour fait le cœur battre et rêver.
Il espère tout, il supporte tout.

L’amour ne périt jamais.

*See the Bible: 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13.

Never be alone
Unless you need to.
God created woman from man’s bone
And bode her to help him break through.

Saint Paul instructs to love your wife
As Christ loved the Church – in the truth, forgiveness, care.
Beautify with love and good deeds your life;
Discover, awesomize, dare.

Be patient, forgive each other;
Gird yourselves with love for God and your brother;
Let God’s peace prevail in you
For you are called to it, it’s true.

Be grateful, teach and perfect in wisdom each day,
Whether at work or at play.
Let your faith and love be seen in acts;
Let your words be based on the truth and your judgement – on facts.

Все добро – від Бога

Дякую, Боже, за все, що мав і маю:
Все добро – від Тебе – знаю;
І до Тебе сміливо прибігаю,
Смиренно прощення благаю…

Господи, дякуємо Тобі за Твою Любов!

Господи, дякуємо Тобі за Твою Любов!
За дива Твої, що й досі твориш.
Помилуй і захисти нас знов!
Дякуємо, що до нас через пророків і Писання говориш!

Боже, пробач наші гріхи,
За милістю Твоєю нам чини.
Але й нас настав, укріпи
На добрі діла сміливо йти,
На щирі слова та чисті думки,
Щоб до Тебе нам руки ще піднести!
Дякуємо, Боже, за щедре добро Твоєї руки.
