Чуго ж руки поскладали?

Чуго ж руки поскладали?
Ще не час відпочивати,
Не всі ще пережитки зруйнували,
Треба цьому раду дати.

Рух уперед зараз необхіжний.
Не стоятимемо десь на краю!
Хай буде успіх плідний,
Важливо розвивати перемогу свою.

Stay bright

Never give up the fight.
Keep on doing wise and kind things.
Your words and deeds can be like salt and light.
Only God knows what the future brings,

But you keep on rowing!
Whatever they say,
Keep on going!
With God’s help you will succeed on your way!

La vie chante une chanson

La vie chante une chanson,
Ecoute et tu entendras;
A chacun sa façon.
Le bon bientôt viendra.

Quoi qu’on dise, la vie est belle,
De temps en temps dure,
Pleine de sucre, pleine de sel,
Mais bonne en tant que telle!

Tu vas réussir, je te dis
Parce que le soleil est si beau,
Le ciel ne sera pas toujours gris.
Tu vas réussir, j’enlèverai mon chapeau.

This could be a song

Open your heart.
That’s exactly what you need.
And let us be smart.
Sharpen your soul’s trusty reed –
Open your heart.

Just let some love inside
And it will live and succeed
Flowering with happiness by side.
It’ll be your shield in court, it’ll plead.

Love does not beg, but gives;
Has noting, but is rich;
A real love never dies, but lives.
Love is the treasure available for each.

Be clever

Love God with all your heart,
Always in prayer, thank for success.
If you have problems, use them to improve your “learn and move on” art –
By doing so you will achieve more, not less.

Be cheerful, with lightness in heart,
Know that night will not last forever.
The morning is soon to start!
In the meanwhile, be clever!

With faith

Best things in life
Happened when God blessed me to act with faith indeed:
Success in studies, finding wife,
Seeing far-away places, happiness, conquering greed.

Bad things are preceded
By absence of faith in deeds:
Bad luck at work, lack of support when it is needed,
Worry, abundance of effort with many unsprouted seeds.
