Adriana Lima: Peace
Shōsan no ai
Praise the light for sight
from whatever height.
Praise insight for might
in sight of the message
Praise design for time
as a sign of movement
from the sun, the moon,
the shining stars
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
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.
148 Laudate Dominum
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.
