Show me just a little smile

Please do not be upset,
Show me just a little smile.
I know, we’ve never met,
But we’re on the same isle.

I’ve got a message for you:
Show me just a little smile.
Although far, you are close to me, it’s true,
So, you’re not alone; I like your kind style!

Любий друже, посміхнись

Johnson_Lake
Любий друже, посміхнись,
Вір, все буде ок!
На світ ширше дивись,
Швидко ті́кає клок.

Яка мета, яка ціль?
Вставай, іди до мети!
Май смак як має сіль,
Щоб світло світу піднести!

Твоє Свято

Життя – великий дар,
Хай що, а ти йди!
Шкода, не може буть без хмар,
Але дощ – не назавжди́.

Твоя посмішка сяє кришталевою росою;
Щире серце знає шлях:
Божий Янгол завжди з тобою,
Навіть в далеких краях.

When you are sad

Jasper_Parkway_-_panoramio_-_Jack_Borno
When you are sad,
Take your time,
Get ready to be glad.
Make juice if you got a lime.

Remember to smile,
It helps with people.
They will appreciate your style.
You can make much even out of little.

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!
