Do things at once

Do things at once
Like helping the poor,
Like completing a task.
Be the doer,
Praise, give, ask.
Always in prayer,
Patient, but never an idle “stayer”.

Як сумно часом буває

Як сумно часом буває,
Чому успіх чужий комусь заважає?
Чи ми, люди, брати?
Чи не тому ми тут, щоб один одному допомогти?

Та дехто забуває,
Через дрібне головне зневажає.
Люди різні та є добро,
Назавжди переможе Воно.

Хай жорстокий розуміє,
Любові тепло синів-дочок зігріє.
Лагідні яскраво засяють.
Терпінням й добром вони перемагають.

Keep on working

Keep on working
However hard it is.
You will soon be “forking”;
But now have patience, please.

The darkest hour
Is right before the dawn
You are this city’s flower.
To get the prize we have to work hard like an ant and a prawn.

Upon God I will rely

Nub_Peak_Panorama
Incredible, how changes are fast!
Man proposes,
But God disposes.
It’s all true to the last!

No use relying on men…
You’ll pay a double price,
But won’t get a bit of your rice.
What shall I do then?

Upon God I will rely!
Being patient and sage,
Quick at learning, slow at rage,
Always in action, never too shy!

However hard it is, go on

However hard it is, go on.
I know problems weigh much,
But to win you were born;
Your kind heart makes you strong as such!

It’s never too late to improve
When you are ready to fight,
Your deeds will prove,
You will enjoy a victorious light.

But now be patient to wait, let the day chase night.
What cannot be cured,
Should be endured.
A climber starts from the bottom to reach the height.

Crosses of others

None of us knows
The crosses of others;
Therefore, wherever each of us goes
Let us be patient with sisters and brothers.

To act upon consideration

To act upon consideration
Involves patience and confidence without hesitation.
This lays the way to success in all.
Wisdom will make peaceful your station.

You will have no call.
Patience will save you from a fall.
Wisdom… The whole world is in this word,
It can heal, it can fly, it can crawl!

Patience is all we need

Patience is all we need!
To savour sweet berries
A farmer takes a small seed.
But time is not sold like cherries.

He who knows how to wait
Inherits riches and fame.
Better wise now than when it is too late;
Learn to control your flame.

Open your eyes to avoid blindness.
Here are two words to learn by heart:
Patience and kindness.
Among the great they make your part.

Strengthen your heart

Strengthen your heart
And wait on the Lord with patience.
He crowns with victory your finish and blesses your start.
He makes your name known among nations.

Le ruisseau de temps coule vite

800px-Banff_Glacier
Le ruisseau de temps coule vite.
Et beaucoup va changer:
Les choses intérieures aussi que le site.
Mais il n’est jamais trop tard pour changer.

Seulement te rappelle toujours:
C’est à toi.
Il y a fondement même dans les plus grandes tours.
Tiens la patience et l’amour avec la foi.

Every day is a new life

Looking_down_the_Banff_Airstrip_(3709530211)
Every day is a new life
And we live, we say, and we run as if in a strife.
But there are things which are minor,
They will disappear on the horizon like a liner.

There are things which are essential,
They must be treated in a way which is differential.
Minor matters draw to the earth and lower in fact;
Essential things require patience and tact.

What’s the difference you say?
Watch and you will see as clear as day:
The award for the minor things is none,
The award for essential ones is blessing with every new dawn.

Patience is a virtue

Path up
Patience is a virtue,
The lack of it can hurt you.
A person who can possess himself and is witty
Is better than one who can capture a city.

You can have an army and money,
But this will not make your day sunny;
And they can disappear quickly; –
Cover yourself with wisdom and patience thickly.

The beginning of wisdom is the fear of God, truly.
Cheer up, have faith and act duly.
Have patience on all paths of life:
At work, at school, with husband or wife.

Be consistent in good

Be consistent in good:
Do something good all the time!
For our souls, kind things are like food;
So, nourish it well with kind deeds and good rhyme.

Watch what you say,
Be patient when people are rude
‘Cause you have your own way.
Whatever they do, try to do things which are good!
