to Greatness
Idai-sa ni akogaremasu

Greatness is the goal for our goodness.

We need to aspire to something higher
than what had been known as owned.

We will build our structures for protection
from danger; not for the destruction of production.
The economy will grow for all those who work
for liberty in the law.

Sacred space is the place to meet
devotion to the motion for growth
as the oath for our hope.

Silence and sound are the ground
for joy to rise from the earth
to give birth to great worth.

Design is our building.
Solid structure will be shown
as our sure refuge from the storm.

The people of the world have assembled
and protested for representative government.

Leaders looked and were amazed.
They retreated to their chambers
and made plans to show respect for rights.

Trembling seized them for their error
in causing fear with their rule of terror.

They writhed in pain as they gave birth
to plans for peace on earth with fair trade
and self-worth; without profit
from war, violence or cruelty.

Security will establish safety
with defense. As we had heard,
so we will see.

We have felt the love of silence.
We have rejoiced in the ecstatic embrace of music.
We have experienced the civil peace of song
in salvation. Beautiful and lofty, this song
celebrates the joy found around the earth.

Let the mountainous cloud be glad.
Let the communities of courage
raise praise for the cleansing
of the atmosphere.

Make the circuit for your security.
Walk around to check the power
of your flowers; the towers for your hours.

Consider the strength of your structure
so you can strengthen your construction
with benign design in your production.

This faith is great.

We need to aspire to something higher
than what we had known for war.

Magnus Dominus

1 Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised; *
in the city of our God is his holy hill.

2 Beautiful and lofty, the joy of all the earth, is the
hill of Zion, *
the very center of the world and the city of the great King.

3 God is in her citadels; *
he is known to be her sure refuge.

4 Behold, the kings of the earth assembled *
and marched forward together.

5 They looked and were astounded; *
they retreated and fled in terror.

6 Trembling seized them there; *
they writhed like a woman in childbirth,
like ships of the sea when the east wind shatters them.

7 As we have heard, so have we seen,
in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God; *
God has established her for ever.

8 We have waited in silence on your loving-kindness, O God, *
in the midst of your temple.

9 Your praise, like your Name, O God, reaches to
the world's end; *
your right hand is full of justice.

10 Let Mount Zion be glad
and the cities of Judah rejoice, *
because of your judgments.

11 Make the circuit of Zion;
walk round about her; *
count the number of her towers.
12 Consider well her bulwarks;
examine her strongholds; *
that you may tell those who come after.

13 This God is our God for ever and ever; *
he shall be our guide for evermore.
