Emily Deschanel:
"Bones" Season 12

Sonā o utau 

Sing a new song.
Make it soft or strong;
short or long.

Sing to the whole earth
about the miracle of birth
with levity and mirth.

Sing with thanks for being alive.
Celebrate salvation for threats you survived.
Establish goals to help you with your drive.

Declare your dignity for democratic domain.
Sing for kingdom and reverent reign.
Respect republic for what it gains.

All things benign shine by design.
They fit a function that is divined.
The quantum swing is entwined.

Order shows through chaos in time.
The framework for change forms cause sublime.
Justice is liberty without harm defined.

Provision is provided by order's plan.
Providence is managed by labor's hand.
Products are produced for you to scan.

The essence of presence is majesty for life.
Hearts are mended from the trials of strife.
Wounds are cleansed and bandaged just right.

Beauty is care for basic needs.
Truth is found in what knowledge feeds.
Grain is grown among the weeds.

Let the earth rejoice.
Heaven is her voice. 
Life is her choice.

Let the sky thunder
so the rain can plunder
the dirt down under.

The trees in the forest will shout with joy.
The silent stillness will be destroyed.
The wealth of wetness will be enjoyed.

Continuity skips with recycled time.
Growth is developed with awareness in mind.
Improvement is achieved with faith inclined.

Merry Christmas 2016!

96 Cantate Domino

1 Sing to the Lord a new song; *
sing to the Lord, all the whole earth.
2 Sing to the Lord and bless his Name; *
proclaim the good news of his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the nations *
and his wonders among all peoples.
4 For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; *
he is more to be feared than all gods.
5 As for all the gods of the nations, they are but idols; *
but it is the Lord who made the heavens.
6 Oh, the majesty and magnificence of his presence! *
Oh, the power and the splendor of his sanctuary!
7 Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples; *
ascribe to the Lord honor and power.
8 Ascribe to the Lord the honor due his Name; *
bring offerings and come into his courts.
9 Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; *
let the whole earth tremble before him.
10 Tell it out among the nations: "The Lord is King! *
he has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved;
he will judge the peoples with equity."
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;
let the sea thunder and all that is in it; *
let the field be joyful and all that is therein.
12 Then shall all the trees of the wood shout for joy
before the Lord when he comes, *
when he comes to judge the earth.
13 He will judge the world with righteousness *
and the peoples with his truth.

Shu Qi:
Married. Pregnant?

Fureguransu no mi kaifū

The troops have been deployed.
The garden has been destroyed. 

Let the rain proclaim providence from heaven.
May grains be crushed for flour and baked with leaven.

We can restore her beauty with cultivation
provided the rain gives saturation.

Let the light from the sun shine.
Let hope be resurrected as mine.

Knowledge about gardening was taken from a land in anguish.
The land had been prepared for growth with labor that did not languish.

The fertility of the earth was nurtured for success.
The green covered brown like the caress of a fresh dress.

The heavens declared wetness, warmth, darkness and light.
The earth received grace as a portent of might.
Those that enslaved people were cast out of the garden.
Would that they had not let their hearts to so harden.

One day tells its tale to another.
One night imparts knowledge like an expectant mother.
Though time has no words or language
the languid languor of sound says what it can manage.

The message has gone out to the ends of the world.
The page has been turned; the turn has uncurled.

The sound has gone out to all of the lands.
Each reaches to each to shake his or her hand.

A pavilion has been set for the sun in the deep.
Illumination rises like a champion from sleep.
Light comes forth like a celebrity onto the stage.
Her beauty shines forth like the rage of the age.

The stage has been set for the course to be run.
from the uttermost edge to the end of the fun.
Nothing but darkness is hidden by rays
that bring our sight the majesty of praise.  

The revolution of law requires evolution in time.
It cannot be suspended by indifferent slime.
No one is above it. No one can climb
beyond liberty with justice
in the lustrous wrestling rustle
of just us in the substance of augustus. 

Reason rejects prejudice as the sui generis
of mutagenesis in the rigid retinas of the next nemesis.

Harm against another based on sex, race, status, religion or party
makes a tardy barney spark an army full of malarky.

Justice revives the whole of the soul.
The fragrance of petals from the bowl is unrolled.

It gives wisdom a prism
to release your mind from the prison of schism.

Do not harbor false belief for relief.
Do not abuse your majority or minority authority.
Preserve time for rest, so you can be at your best.

Honor your family to strive for length of life without strife.
Do not murder or subvert reality as the whisperer's pipe.
Do not destroy property or relation in the celebration of nation.

Do not steal or reveal a witness untrue.

That which was known to you will be thrown through the blue.

Do not covet though you love it. You will lose the new of your queue.

Do not parade to invade. It will make what you say a slave to charade.

Provide for the elderly, the disabled, the poor.

It will open a door through which your spirit will soar.

Education is a celebration of generation, not an oblation to obligation.

Social security restrains spending on military extravagance and mutation.

Do you believe in God? Put growth in the sod.

Set faith into action with love for satisfaction.
You will earn respect by honoring rights for insight in life.

Make your rule of law to build trust.
It will bust the dust from your crust 
to combust what you must.

Our vine has taken root. It is enroute to make a magical fruit.
The commute will compute the chute as tender tendril shoots 
that reach from river to sea in pursuit of absolute glee.
The land will be filled with fertility. 
Justice will be our virility.

Restore our trust in us.
It's a must.

80 Qui regis Israel

1 Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, leading Joseph like a flock; *
shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim.
2 In the presence of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, *
stir up your strength and come to help us.
3 Restore us, O God of hosts; *
show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
4 O Lord God of hosts, *
how long will you be angered
despite the prayers of your people?
5 You have fed them with the bread of tears; *
you have given them bowls of tears to drink.
6 You have made us the derision of our neighbors, *
and our enemies laugh us to scorn.
7 Restore us, O God of hosts; *
show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
8 You have brought a vine out of Egypt; *
you cast out the nations and planted it.
9 You prepared the ground for it; *
it took root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered by its shadow *
and the towering cedar trees by its boughs.
11 You stretched out its tendrils to the Sea *
and its branches to the River.
12 Why have you broken down its wall, *
so that all who pass by pluck off its grapes?
13 The wild boar of the forest has ravaged it, *
and the beasts of the field have grazed upon it.
14 Turn now, O God of hosts, look down from heaven;
behold and tend this vine; *
preserve what your right hand has planted.
15 They burn it with fire like rubbish; *
at the rebuke of your countenance let them perish.
16 Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand, *
the son of man you have made so strong for yourself.
17 And so will we never turn away from you; *
give us life, that we may call upon your Name.
18 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts; *
show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.

Katie Holmes:

the Dear
Ai shite ōen

Yeah Yah!
Booya daya!

Extol the whole, O my soul!
Peace lives as the goal.

I will outline the design that is fine;
the design that will be mine
after I climb my mind to find
what I left behind in the sublime.

I will celebrate the date 
that does not hate  
or berate what's straight.

I won't trust ignorance
as cause to destroy difference.
It will only protect the ignorant,
the irritable and the belligerent. 

Happy are those who savor the Savior
for salvation. The patient awaken nations
 to find relations for generations.

Who made heaven and earth?
Who gave life the capacity to give birth?
Who made the promise to protect life?
How is the law to prevent strife?

Who gives justice to the oppressed?
Who gives guidance for what is best? 
Who gives food to those who hunger? 
Who gives knowledge to those who are younger?

The Liberator sets the prisoners free.
Compensation helps the blind to see.

 Uprightness lifts those bowed down.
The lift is spread all around.
Strangeness makes the stranger tame.
Tameness keeps the game in frame.

Provision for the orphan and widow
gives economy an open window.
Wickedness. It will not pay.
It reduces credence for what they say.

Time will reign throughout the length.
Length is lent to good judgment.

Life will live by generation.
Love is felt for our creation.
Generation for creation
is Love's incarnation!

Extol the whole, O my soul!
Peace lives as the goal.

Booya daya!
Yeah Yah!

146 Lauda, anima mea

1 Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord, O my soul! *
I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
2 Put not your trust in rulers, nor in any child of earth, *
for there is no help in them.
3 When they breathe their last, they return to earth, *
and in that day their thoughts perish.
4 Happy are they who have the God of Jacob for their help! *
whose hope is in the Lord their God;
5 Who made heaven and earth, the seas, and all that is in them; *
who keeps his promise for ever;
6 Who gives justice to those who are oppressed, *
and food to those who hunger.
7 The Lord sets the prisoners free;
the Lord opens the eyes of the blind; *
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
8 The Lord loves the righteous;
the Lord cares for the stranger; *
he sustains the orphan and widow,
but frustrates the way of the wicked.
9 The Lord shall reign for ever, *
your God, O Zion, throughout all generations.

Vanessa Hudgens:
High School Musical 4

Kizoku no heiwa o ataeru 

Give the elected executive 
valid precedent for the present
in the authority of the president. 

Give the legal system  
a wisdom prism;
a moral compass 
for justice 
for all
not the 'just us' 

The rule of law
won't fall when the call
is not a squall for a brawl.

The mountains will bring clarity
to prosperity and verity.

The hills will condense defense
against pretense.

Need will feed moderation.
Excess spending will be rejected by the nation.

The poor will be protected.
No one will be neglected.

Justice will live as long as time endures.
Fairness will secure that which is yours.

Grace will shower your nature.
Love will favor your nomenclature.

We will feast on peace
until cruelty and violence have ceased.

Security will guide the land.
The light of justice will lend a hand.

Knowledge about the history of rights 
will reduce the fear that causes fights.

Reports about the enemy 
will be scrutinized for credibility.

Let what is best for the economy of people
drive Constitutional democracy with the equal diesel. 

May there be an abundance of food for all the earth.
Let rain feed the grain, the plants and the creatures of birth.

May all the nations count that which is blessed
to give our life labor, management and rest.

Blessed be the leadership.
May each help us to choose what is equipped
for each citizen's script.

Blessed be the glory of creation.
The Creator is the cause of our elation.

72 Deus, judicium

1 Give the King your justice, O God, *
and your righteousness to the King's Son;
2 That he may rule your people righteously *
and the poor with justice.
3 That the mountains may bring prosperity to the people, *
and the little hills bring righteousness.
4 He shall defend the needy among the people; *
he shall rescue the poor and crush the oppressor.
5 He shall live as long as the sun and moon endure, *
from one generation to another.
6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown field, *
like showers that water the earth.
7 In his time shall the righteous flourish; *
there shall be abundance of peace till the moon shall be no more.
8 He shall rule from sea to sea, *
and from the River to the ends of the earth.
9 His foes shall bow down before him, *
and his enemies lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall pay tribute, *
and the kings of Arabia and Saba offer gifts.
11 All kings shall bow down before him, *
and all the nations do him service.
12 For he shall deliver the poor who cries out in distress, *
and the oppressed who has no helper.
13 He shall have pity on the lowly and poor; *
he shall preserve the lives of the needy.
14 He shall redeem their lives from oppression and violence, *
and dear shall their blood be in his sight.
15 Long may he live!
and may there be given to him gold from Arabia; *
may prayer be made for him always,
and may they bless him all the day long.
16 May there be abundance of grain on the earth,
growing thick even on the hilltops; *
may its fruit flourish like Lebanon,
and its grain like grass upon the earth.
17 May his Name remain for ever
and be established as long as the sun endures; *
may all the nations bless themselves in him and call him blessed.
18 Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, *
who alone does wondrous deeds!
19 And blessed be his glorious Name for ever! *
and may all the earth be filled with his glory.
Amen. Amen.
