Glorify God and do not fear

Glorify God and do not fear;
Toward wisdom and faith incline your ear.
Let your deeds be sincere and bold;
Be careful and protect what you hold.

If you love, be worthy of it

If you love, be worthy of it:
Show your strength, faith, wit.
May God also send you wisdom to choose
To find yourself and the friend and not to lose.

Wisdom is what I need

Wisdom is what I need.
Resolution is what I lack.
Hesitation is sad, indeed:
One step forward, one and a half back.

Where is right?
What is wrong?
I want to see light.
But sad is my song.

The escape is close, I know.
The key is somewhere inside.
My work is to row.
Let ideas be broad, the world is wide.

Church rejoicing

Have you ever thought
That a true Christian Church is triumphant indeed?
With all the spiritual fights it successfully fought,
The wisdom it has to feed…

Therefore, let us rejoice
So that when an outsider
Comes and hears our voice,
(S)he should glorify God and wish to become an insider.

Life is passing so fast

Life is passing so fast
Days are running ahead.
Sooner or later, we’ll feel at last.
The colour is green, but it’s changing to red.

‘Watch your time’,
I say to myself.
Life can be both honey and lime;
Time won’t lie on a shelf.

So, I’d better be quick to perform.
Trifles are cutting my line.
I’d better be wise to bear a storm.
Wisdom makes every day really fine.

God gives all

God gives all:
Happiness and health,
With or without wealth;
He also hears when you call.

Be brave, He is with you.
Do good and live.
The time is short, the days are few.
Be brave, kind and wise; when you can, give.

It’s never too late

It’s never too late,
Whatever you feel.
Go ahead, what for to wait?
Rust covers resting steel.

When everything seems to be lost,
Start from the beginning.
There is something which is beyond any cost…
The bell of life inside of you is ringing!

It’s never too late,
Just try!
What else to state?
Believe, wisdom makes people fly!

Будь мужнім і дій мудро повсякчас

Будь мужнім і дій мудро повсякчас.
Хай ворог лютує, а ти будь спок,
Хай посміхається як фантомас.
Ти – досвідчений док.

Твоя освіта допомагає;
Твоє серце чисте сяє;
Бог любить і пам’ятає.
Правда неправду здолає.

Отже, йди уперед, постійно у молитві;
Працюй поступово, мудро, сміливо,
Щоб із Божою допомогою перемогти у битві,
Щоб Господь благословив це диво.
