Adriana Lima: Peace

Shōsan no ai

Yeah Yah!

Praise the light for sight 
from whatever height. 

Praise insight for might 
in sight of the message
to love.

Praise design for time
 as a sign of movement 
from the sun, the moon, 
the shining stars
and planets. 

Praise the sight of heaven
as the might of the heavens.

Let the waters rise from earth
to water the dirt from the height
of the heavens.

Praise the Designer 
for design in time 
for the interpretation 
of your mind.

Perception leads to conception;
conception to find statements
for perspective aligned 
with direction by signs.

The substance of statements
are refined and streamlined  
until they unwind.

Let praise rise from sea monsters
from the depths sliding to rise above the tides
for a ride by the ship's side.

Heat makes water rise as waves of fire
that don't tire until clouds release rain, 
hail, snow, tempest, thunder, lightning
beyond desire.

Water reigns as rain waters
mountains, hills, plains, trees,
wild beasts, cattle, creeping things 
and the birds that battle for the art
of song in the long drawn tempest
of life in time.

Rulers of the world: You kings, queens, princes, 
principles,precepts, princesses, presidents and people
climb the steep hill to see insight into law for life with love.

Young and old, male and female, gather your savings 
for salvation in the name of leadership by liberty in the law
with rights for all with peace and justice with agility for fertility,
art, production and construction

Let the name of those who love be exalted.
Let management with labor be the strength

of the people. 

Let those who disagree with oppression
by the threat of death or destruction
be praised as children of equanimity 
for peace with kindness in competition.

Let all those against murder 
be raised in praise for the glory
that is in line with design in time.

Let all those who praise love,
live life as new leaders.

Yeah Yah!

148 Laudate Dominum

1 Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord from the heavens; *
praise him in the heights.
2 Praise him, all you angels of his; *
praise him, all his host.
3 Praise him, sun and moon; *
praise him, all you shining stars.
4 Praise him, heaven of heavens, *
and you waters above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the Name of the Lord; *
for he commanded, and they were created.
6 He made them stand fast for ever and ever; *
he gave them a law which shall not pass away.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth, *
you sea-monsters and all deeps;
8 Fire and hail, snow and fog, *
tempestuous wind, doing his will;
9 Mountains and all hills, *
fruit trees and all cedars;
10 Wild beasts and all cattle, *
creeping things and winged birds;
11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, *
princes and all rulers of the world;
12 Young men and maidens, *
old and young together.
13 Let them praise the Name of the Lord, *
for his Name only is exalted,
his splendor is over earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up strength for his people
and praise for all his loyal servants, *
the children of Israel, a people who are near him.

Anata no hitsuyō-sei o yashinaimasu 

Need is my lead.
I will not bleed for greed.

I will lay back in a field of green;
to look to see what can be seen;
to chew on a long stem of grass;
to think about which path to pass;
to look upon water close at hand;
to oppose presupposing homicide by plan.

I will not deny fear of evil or strife.
Fear gives light for sight in life.

You are with me by faith and heart.
Comfort slows my racing start.

Trust will be re-written.
Inequality will be de-commissioned.

The table will be for discussion and debate.
Reason will rule without hate.

My head has been anointed with oil and sweat.
My income has been overrun by debt.

Surely goodness and mercy sustain the wait.
My life will dwell in this house of heart by faith.

Jerry Ryan: Osh Kosh by "Bosch"

Kyōi o genshō sa semasu

Diminish threat
with caution for sufficiency.
Destruction only 
builds delusion
until threat reasserts

itself by intrusion.

I will applaud life
beyond the trodden trail
because there was no pause
in divine applause
for education.

My doubt did not defeat me.
I cried out for help 
and I was restored to health.
I was given breath
as I was going down to death.

Sing for life you who have escaped strife.
Give thanks for the remembrance 
of your deliverance.

Threat lasts for a moment.
Gratitude stays as long 
as you remember.

You will remember 
that love makes life
worthy of remembrance.

Weeping attends disappointment, 
but joy assimilates your appointment 
for the evolution of congress
for progress.

When my security was based 
on defeating others, I said,
"I will never be defeated.
Fortune favors the strong."

Fortune's face hid my disgrace
as I fell prey to fear. Threat 
drew near. It appeared to be 
for the extinction of pride.

I cried, "What will I learn
if I am extinguished with my pride?
I will have died without another stride
in the progress towards having learned
what I should have discerned 
with faith for the discernment.

"What will be the profit 
if I go down to the grave?
Will the dirt raise praise
for being faithful?

"Have mercy. 
Preserve life
for gratitude 
among the living."

My weeping was turned to joy. 
I danced to celebrate redemption.

My heart sings without ceasing. 
Hope did not join the deceased. 

It was not seized.
It has not decreased.

Faith is a reward 
for the faithful. 

Threat is diminished, not finished,
by reasonable respect for due diligence
in strategic safeguards for caution.

30 Exaltabo te, Domine

1 I will exalt you, O Lord,
because you have lifted me up *
and have not let my enemies triumph over me.
2 O Lord my God, I cried out to you, *
and you restored me to health.
3 You brought me up, O Lord, from the dead; *
you restored my life as I was going down to the grave.
4 Sing to the Lord, you servants of his; *
give thanks for the remembrance of his holiness.
5 For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye, *
his favor for a lifetime.
6 Weeping may spend the night, *
but joy comes in the morning.
7 While I felt secure, I said,
"I shall never be disturbed. *
You, Lord, with your favor, made me as strong as
the mountains."
8 Then you hid your face, *
and I was filled with fear.
9 I cried to you, O Lord; *
I pleaded with the Lord, saying,
10 "What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the Pit? *
will the dust praise you or declare your faithfulness?
11 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me; *
O Lord, be my helper."
12 You have turned my wailing into dancing; *
you have put off my sack-cloth and clothed me with joy.
13 Therefore my heart sings to you without ceasing; *
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks for ever.

Celebrate Creation
Sakusei o iwaimasu

Yeah Yah!

Applaud God,
not fraud, to celebrate
creation with mind.

Praise the Designer
for design in time.

Praise substance for strength.
Praise energy for power.

Praise excellence for greatness.
Praise imitation and the instrument 
for the sound.

Praise composition for music and dance.
Praise direction and rehersal for performance
with power.

Praise induction in perception
for the production of conception 
with attention.

Praise construction for deduction
in perspective on design.

Praise detection for redemption
in the intepretation of signs.

Praise alignment for confinement
to correction for empirical mind.

Praise the crash for the bash
to the singularity of cash for the stash.

Let everything that has breath
praise creation for inspiration
in being kind in time.

150 Laudate Dominum

1 Hallelujah!
Praise God in his holy temple; *
praise him in the firmament of his power.
2 Praise him for his mighty acts; *
praise him for his excellent greatness.
3 Praise him with the blast of the ram's-horn; *
Praise him with lyre and harp.
4 Praise him with timbrel and dance; *
praise him with strings and pipe.
5 Praise him with resounding cymbals; *
praise him with loud-clanging cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath *
praise the Lord.

Happy Birthday!
Keri Russell



Jihi wa taemasu 

Give thanks for goodness.
Gratitude endures forever.

Let the opposition proclaim,
"Mercy endures."

Let experience declare,
"Mercy endures."

Let intelligence state,
"Mercy endures."

I called for help in my distress.
I was delivered. I was set free.

Love is on my side.
What can anyone do to me?

Defense was there to help me.
I will triumph over hatred.

It is better to rely on that which 
is worthy of trust, than to invest
in profit from violence.

Temptation sought my conscription.
Ungodliness had me surrounded.
I was hemmed in. I had been hemmed in
on every side.

I repelled temptation. I will repel
the urge to support destruction for oppression 
from the threat of damage or death.

Harmful impulses swarmed about me like bees.
They raged against me like fire from thorns.

I will repel them. It is my responsibility.
I was pressed so hard. I was crucified, 
but faith in love delivered me.

Love is my strength and my song.
Faith has become my salvation.

There is the sound of victory
in the tents of our exultation.

Liberty in the law has triumphed!
Justice is exalted!

I will not die. I will live
to declare the work of salvation.

I had been punished severely,
but I was not handed over to death.

Open the gates to righteousness.
I will enter. I will offer thanks
for deliverance.

"This is the gateway to love.
Righteousness by faith is welcome."

I will give thanks because I was answered.
I experienced the joy of salvation.

The stone which the builders had rejected
has become the chief cornerstone.

This is deliverance by design.
It is marvelous. It is wondrous in our eyes.

Defense has acted on this day!
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
 Say "Yes" to this success!

Blessed are those who come in the name of love.
We bless you from this house for peace.

God is our Leader. The love of peace 
has shined upon us. Form a procession
with palms raised to the alter for thanks.

"You are my God. I will thank you.
You are our Leadership. We will exalt you."

Give thanks to our Leader.
She is good. Her mercy endures 
for us.

118 Confitemini Domino
1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; *
his mercy endures for ever.
2 Let Israel now proclaim, *
"His mercy endures for ever."
3 Let the house of Aaron now proclaim, *
"His mercy endures for ever."
4 Let those who fear the Lord now proclaim, *
"His mercy endures for ever."
5 I called to the Lord in my distress; *
the Lord answered by setting me free.
6 The Lord is at my side, therefore I will not fear; *
what can anyone do to me?
7 The Lord is at my side to help me; *
I will triumph over those who hate me.
8 It is better to rely on the Lord *
than to put any trust in flesh.
9 It is better to rely on the Lord *
than to put any trust in rulers.
10 All the ungodly encompass me; *
in the name of the Lord I will repel them.
11 They hem me in, they hem me in on every side; *
in the name of the Lord I will repel them.
12 They swarm about me like bees;
they blaze like a fire of thorns; *
in the name of the Lord I will repel them.
13 I was pressed so hard that I almost fell, *
but the Lord came to my help.
14 The Lord is my strength and my song, *
and he has become my salvation.
15 There is a sound of exultation and victory *
in the tents of the righteous:
16 "The right hand of the Lord has triumphed! *
the right hand of the Lord is exalted!
the right hand of the Lord has triumphed!"
17 I shall not die, but live, *
and declare the works of the Lord.
18 The Lord has punished me sorely, *
but he did not hand me over to death.
19 Open for me the gates of righteousness; *
I will enter them;
I will offer thanks to the Lord.
20 "This is the gate of the Lord; *
he who is righteous may enter."
21 I will give thanks to you, for you answered me *
and have become my salvation.
22 The same stone which the builders rejected *
has become the chief cornerstone.
23 This is the Lord's doing, *
and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 On this day the Lord has acted; *
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Hosannah, Lord, hosannah! *
Lord, send us now success.
26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; *
we bless you from the house of the Lord.
27 God is the Lord; he has shined upon us; *
form a procession with branches up to the horns of the altar.
28 "You are my God, and I will thank you; *
you are my God, and I will exalt you."
29 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; *
his mercy endures for ever.

Charisma Carpenter: Surviving Evil

Yasashiku shimasu

Be nice to me.
I am in distress.

My eyes are worn by the trail of tears.
My soul is bent with grief.

My life is spent in sorrow;
my years with sighing.

My strength fails 
because of misery.

My bones waste away.
I am the scorn of adversity 
born by adversaries. I am the target
of terror for advocates of violence;
an object of dread for the brief
in acquaintance; who exploit 
the appearance of loss
for the illusion of conquest.

Those who see what has been done
flee from me in the streets.
I have been pressed 
from my mind as one 
who has died. The vessel
for my essence has been bent
but not broken.

Whispers whirl like twisters
spreading fear with their sound.

They seem to scheme against me.
They threaten to take my life.

I put my trust in your salvation.
You are my deliverance.

My time is in your hands.
Deliver me from the enemies
who persecute me.

Let your love shine
through my face.

Save me with your energy
through my hands.

Sandra Bullock: "Minions"

Keii o fukugen

When Voting and Civil Rights were enacted
we were living the dream.

The air was filled with laughter.
Our mouths raised shouts of joy.

They said among the nations,
"The rule of law has done 
great things for them."

The law has done great things for us.
We celebrate our rights, but recognize our wrong.

Those who profit from the promotion of violence
use war and the death penalty to override 
the law against murder.

They deceive us with their stories.
They target groups and areas for attack.

They kill people and destroy property
to sell more of their products for destruction.
We are taxed for damage and repairs.

We are charged higher prices to compete
with the plutocrats that exploit us
with their taxation. We are oppressed
by the risk of forcing governments 
to change, while ours has reduced 
representation to help the one who
seeks to profit most 
from our oppression.

We need redemption.

Let the restoration of rights

flow like the raging rush of water 
to the sea.

Those who sowed hope with sweat

will reap songs of progress with joy.

Those who labor despite lamentation,

will share profit from the productivity
of their production.

126 In convertendo

1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, *
then were we like those who dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, *
and our tongue with shouts of joy.
3 Then they said among the nations, *
"The Lord has done great things for them."
4 The Lord has done great things for us, *
and we are glad indeed.
5 Restore our fortunes, O Lord, *
like the watercourses of the Negev.
6 Those who sowed with tears *
will reap with songs of joy.
7 Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed, *
will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves.
