The key to the Kingdom

Love is the key
To the Kingdom of God truly.
It sets you free,
It makes you grow fully.

Love disperses fear;
Love wipes off every tear.
It cures hurt,
It builds rapport.

Love your neighbour,
Let it be small, but sincere.
Let your way be known far and near,
May both of you succeed in your labour.

If you want to enter the Kingdom ever,
Have love in stock;
In your kind deeds, be clever;
Love the Pastor and love the flock.

May He prolong your days!

When do you live?

There is no tomorrow,
No yesterday as well.
Save now in order not to borrow;
Listen to the ringing bell.

Life is signing now.
Putting off a kind deed
Is to pinch your own brow,
It is to refuse an essential need.

By doing good to a neighbour
You do good to yourself first of all.
Good deed for soul is daily bread and labour.
Say “today” in order not to fall.

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!

A kind smile can heal

A kind smile can heal,
More than that: it cures for sure.
People will smile back whatever they feel.
It’s true in space, underground, at sea, and ashore.

Good mood passes over to people around.
Even if they are unhappy, suppressed,
They hear the jolly sound
And bad mood disappears without rest.

So, try to smile at your neighbour.
Believe! You need no hesitation,
And he will help you back with your labour.
Language of good needs no translation!

Except the Lord shall build the house

Except the Lord shall build the house,
They labour in vain that build it.
God protects against destruction, theft, and mouse.
God saves out of the deepest pit.

Except the Lord shall keep the city,
The watchman wakes up in vain.
God makes nation’s leaders witty.
He cures our infirmities and multiplies the harvest of grain.

In the image and likeness of God

Man is created in the image of God indeed.
Can you see the likeness of God in your neighbour?
Can this be seen in your words, in your deed?
Can one see this in your labour?

There are many places to start,
One good place is your Church, community.
Try to give something in simplicity, with a joyful heart.
Let your body and soul be in a sane unity!
