If we are ready to strive,
We must not doubt at all.
You are strong and sage, you are alive –
You are born to win, not to fall!

Incredible, how changes are fast!
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!

Souris, ton sourire est beau.
Quoi qu’il se passe, sois courageux/-se.
Devant toi on enlèvera son chapeau –
Sois bon/ne, sage, simple et généreaux /-se

Christmas bells are singing,
How blissfully calm is their ringing!
It’s a song of life for all,
Let’s open our hearts to a poor man’s call!
Never close your soul and it’ll be cured.
Hardships are given to be sagely endured.
However difficult sometimes it may be,
You are born to win, not to flee!

If you want to be sage,
Be patient, forget about rage.
Learn to listen first of all
And you will stand where talkative people fall.
And then don’t be shy to ask;
Good advice is a half done task.
Don’t be too fast to act.
On time though you should react.
Wisdom is close,
He who accepts it will thrive like a rose.
Wisdom is calling for you.
So, listen to get your due.

What you have, hold.
You are so rich indeed!
You are smart, you are bold,
Your health is more precious than gold.
So, be wise to save it and maintain.
No one knows what will happen then.
Under the sun or pouring rain,
Be sage to keep what is main.
Believe, these words are true.
You will need much strength –
Till the sky above is blue –
To do kind things, to break through!

When I do wrong, I ask to forgive.
The Father and people always do and so I happily live.
But how often, how easy do I pardon in turn?
I have so much to learn…
I am aching for a change,
I believe I am able to arrange.
I only pray for being sage,
I do need wisdom which never knows rage.
But first of all I want to thank.
People are kind to me who has neither much money nor a high rank.
Thank Thee, Father, for all,
Especially for love, Thou hear every call!

I wish I had never hesitated,
Just always pushed forward, never waited.
Then I would have escaped so much trouble,
I would have gained double.
But all the same, it’s all right
‘Cause my mistakes are in sight
And that’s the first stage:
‘To realize’ is the foregoer of ‘to become sage’.
I’m going to be sure when doing good
And also firm when saying ‘no’ to bad or rude.
That’s the way to be
For those who want to win, for thee.
