Grace and love

Once I got ill.
God showed grace and love then too.
I let the children in the line go first and sat still;
I did not feel worse, true.

When it was time to pay,
It turned out I had no cash.
The receptionist agreed to wait a day.
So, I called a taxi – it came in a flash.

I asked to lend me money –
The driver agreed
With an expression in heart so sunny,
Leaving no place for greed.

Thank You, Father, for all these kind deeds
And for saying to ask to be given!
You look after all our needs.
Let us remember Your words wherever we may be driven.

Care for each other

You’re brothers indeed,
So, care for each other.
To have a good crop, you need a good seed,
So, care for each other.

When you can, do,
Help your suffering brother.
He is so tired, it’s true,
Help your suffering brother.

All your deeds are noted down,
No doubt, you will be paid back.
Listen to your kind heart sound,
No doubt you will be paid back!

Let good remain

We live, what can be better, in fact?
How much we can, ours is the time to react!
Always in search of the way.
Motion is life, wrong is delay.

It doesn’t matter where I’ve been,
But where I’m going.
In spite of misfortunes I’ve seen,
I look ahead; a gentle wind is blowing.

No matter what will happen tomorrow,
I want to do good today.
It brings in light, takes away sorrow.
Love and kindness remain, whatever they say!

Do kind things to your neighbour

Do kind things to your neighbour,
Observe God’s will this way.
You will advance in your labour
In God’s blessing you’ll stay!
