A noble song stirs my soul.
My heart is flying. The adored core
has learned to soar. I will sing for this thing
as though I were king. My writing will be fighting
for freedom that includes fair trade.
You are the fairest of women.
Speech flows from your lips with grace
because you listen to hear. You have been
blessed from before your birth.
Condition yourself for defense;
your mind for sustainable growth.
Take up investigation. Seek truth
for democracy with justice.
Key ideas and core concepts will organize
details into comprehensible patterns.
Elusive definition meets inescapable reality.
Truth is a concept that must align
with existence as it is.
Draw your bow carefully archer.
Steady your aim sharpshooter.
Define your line of argument citizen.
The bull’s eye defines your prize.
People admire your ability.
Even enemies respect your skill.
Exploration will show you more wonderful things.
Your insights will hit the mark, enlightened adventurer.
The essence of design will endure.
Essential goodness is the rule of law.
Respect rights for all and privilege won’t be limited
to plutocracy. Support the prosecution of plutocrats.
A larger scale of crime does not make the offense non-criminal.
Hate iniquity, but don’t seek to destroy the offender.
Correction has to be the goal for punishment,
otherwise the punishment is cruel and counter-productive.
You have been anointed with the oil of gladness.
Achievement in leadership lays the foundation
for accomplishment for others.
All your clothes are clean and stylish.
Your music has high fidelity sound.
Beauty, rhythm and grace
are the elements for art.
The gold from Ophir was refined
for a specific period of time.
Energy, time and matter change
in space without loss of quantity.
Cause is the force for change.
Design, form and function
are seen in the light of day.
Exploration, investigation and
experimentation are analytic.
Plans are drawn from knowledge.
Function provides a form for production.
Thought is formed from feeling;
then redrawn by experience with education.
Time can be measured as a line,
but it is experienced from the ‘inside out’
for the ‘outside in.’ The lines for objectivity
are drawn in recycled time for an analysis
of history that aims at improvement.
Responsibility will take pleasure
in your beauty. You are a sublime
expression of transcendence in mind.
Respect for rights is honor.
The majority must respect rights
for minorities and each minority
will respect rights for the majority
or ‘democracy’ is a front for dictatorship.
When a minority from the majority
or a minority takes too much from the economy
to respect basic needs for all, the state of affairs
for the people suffers.
The precious presence of the divine essence
proceeds from discord to redemption. It is
a glorious procession to the offering
of a portion of profit to celebration.
Joy and gladness radiate from the core
of our community.
Our place is a palace for precedential delight.
Improvement is based on a reasonable measure
of what had been done. Whatever is not reasonable
about the measure will be adjusted for love.
The fame of our gain from gathering will be
celebrated in generations yet to come
as they build upon the foundation
we have made for community.
Respect rights to build immunity
to the disease of graft for greed.
45 Eructavit cor meum
1 My heart is stirring with a noble song;
let me recite what I have fashioned for the king; *
my tongue shall be the pen of a skilled writer.
2 You are the fairest of men; *
grace flows from your lips,
because God has blessed you for ever.
3 Strap your sword upon your thigh, O mighty warrior, *
in your pride and in your majesty.
4 Ride out and conquer in the cause of truth *
and for the sake of justice.
5 Your right hand will show you marvelous things; *
your arrows are very sharp, O mighty warrior.
6 The peoples are falling at your feet, *
and the king's enemies are losing heart.
7 Your throne, O God, endures for ever and ever, *
a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom;
you love righteousness and hate iniquity.
8 Therefore God, your God, has anointed you *
with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
9 All your garments are fragrant with myrrh, aloes, and cassia, *
and the music of strings from ivory palaces makes you glad.
10 Kings' daughters stand among the ladies of the court; *
on your right hand is the queen,
adorned with the gold of Ophir.
11 "Hear, O daughter; consider and listen closely; *
forget your people and your father's house.
12 The king will have pleasure in your beauty; *
he is your master; therefore do him honor.
13 The people of Tyre are here with a gift; *
the rich among the people seek your favor."
14 All glorious is the princess as she enters; *
her gown is cloth-of-gold.
15 In embroidered apparel she is brought to the king; *
after her the bridesmaids follow in procession.
16 With joy and gladness they are brought, *
and enter into the palace of the king.
17 "In place of fathers, O king, you shall have sons; *
you shall make them princes over all the earth.
18 I will make your name to be remembered
from one generation to another; *
therefore nations will praise you for ever and ever."
