Isabela Moner:
Legends of the Hidden Temple

the Flower
Hana ni chikara o ataeru 

Thought exists.
Love persists.
Destruction is dismissed.

I was glad when they said to me,
"Let us go. We will be free
to sing of leadership 
for the economy."

Now our feet stand
with respect for land
within the gates 
that peace commands.

The city plan 
is quite grand
with a unity 
that is set to expand.

The tribes go up 
to the city for us
for council that builds trust
to discuss sureness.

The aim of the game 
is to tame the vain train 
of profanity for gain
from the insanity 
of vanity's flame.

There are seats for judgment
that accent ascent that is lent
to help pay the rent.

The house of courage asks for peace
that does not cease for the excess increase
for caprice in gain taken from the deceased.

Pray for the serenity of all
that does not fall into a stall
that will not crawl
for fright from sight
in the crystal ball.

"May those who love you prosper
to assure that they defer from the saboteur
of what is to be inferred from truth
to that which is true to sooth you to concur
with reality as the whisperer."

"May your tower of power
stand strong by the hour
with the encounter of shower 
when needed to empower the flower."

122 Lætatus sum
1 I was glad when they said to me, *
"Let us go to the house of the Lord."
2 Now our feet are standing *
within your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is built as a city *
that is at unity with itself;
4 To which the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord, *
the assembly of Israel,
to praise the Name of the Lord.
5 For there are the thrones of judgment, *
the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: *
"May they prosper who love you.
7 Peace be within your walls *
and quietness within your towers.
8 For my brethren and companions' sake, *
I pray for your prosperity.
9 Because of the house of the Lord our God, *
I will seek to do you good."

Rachel Weisz:
Conical Hat Keeps Out the Cold

the Past
Kako o watasu

Pass the past,
but not too fast.
It was a blast,
but it has passed.

It's gone.
It wasn't all wrong,
but some things went on 
for far too long.

Light is our refuge and strength
even when the sight is not in great length.

We will not fear though the earth be moved.
Our word is strong. Let the strength be proved.

Should mountains be toppled into the depth of the sea
firmness in faith will be free to agree.

When waters rage and foam
certitude will still be known.

When mountains tremble at the earth's tumult
credibility in truth will not revolt
or bolt.

The Host of hosts will stand with us.
Hospitality will build trust.
The breath of ghost 
will bust the dust
with a gust.

Deliverance is our stronghold.
The sound of brass feels so bold.
That trumpet blast sold solid gold.

There is a river that flows through the city of peace.
 The health of softness does not cease
like the downy crown on the feather 
of geese.

It is the habitation of perpetual time;
the gravitation from the earth's sublime climb.

Energy moves the muscle of matter.
When substance is solid, it does not scatter.

Force is found in the defense of time.
Dispersion grounds the sound of the mime.

Dawn will shine at the break of day.
Color will show where it once was gray.

Republic rages and kingdom is shaken.
Law is formed when justice is awakened.

The Word has spoken. The world was mistaken.
Reality grabs for the light that was taken.

Hospitality is ours
when showered with flowers
for the power of the hour.

Look upon the works of the night
when the darkness takes flight 
from the midst of the light.

Awesome things were shown on the stage of the world.
The gun was secured. The flag was unfurled.

She was embraced with her love. Songs were sung for her peace.
This is what made war in society cease.

The missiles were broken. The jets did not fly
though media accounts gave the lie one more try.

Defense had been shaken though it did not give way.
Trial by fire showed the desire for an infinite day.

"Be still then and know me your friend.
I will stand with you beyond the bitter end.
I will be here for the law of the nations to rise.
I will secure the means for the earth's celebration
to ring through the skies."

The Host of hosts is with us.
Hospitality will build trust.
The breath of ghost 
will bust the dust
with a gust.

Deliverance is our stronghold.
The sound of brass feels so bold.
That trumpet blast sold solid gold.

46 Deus noster refugium

1 God is our refuge and strength, *
a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, *
and though the mountains be toppled into the depths of the sea;
3 Though its waters rage and foam, *
and though the mountains tremble at its tumult.
4 The Lord of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
5 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, *
the holy habitation of the Most High.
6 God is in the midst of her;
she shall not be overthrown; *
God shall help her at the break of day.
7 The nations make much ado, and the kingdoms are shaken; *
God has spoken, and the earth shall melt away.
8 The Lord of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
9 Come now and look upon the works of the Lord, *
what awesome things he has done on earth.
10 It is he who makes war to cease in all the world; *
he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear,
and burns the shields with fire.
11 "Be still, then, and know that I am God; *
I will be exalted among the nations;
I will be exalted in the earth."
12 The Lord of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

Trigger Point-Trailer

Heiwa o umu 

Sing a song.
Make it soft or make it strong.

Sing of wonder. Sing of grace.
Put your heart in a happy place.

Make  mystery part of history. 
Knowledge is the victory.

Rightness is being shown to the nations.
It will be our celebration.

Remember mercy as faith.
It will give you a sense of place.

Shout with joy all you lands!
Judgment with reason is a place to stand.

Lift your voice. Rejoice and sing.
Music is a wonderful thing.

Sing with horns and sing with strings.
Teamwork gives community zing.

Shout with joy upon the stage.
Happiness heals at any age.

Let the sea resound with rhythmic sound.
The land will stand. Your pulse will pound. 

Let the rivers flow with constant change.
The hills will watch and affirm the range.

Design is fine when aligned with time.
Produce with peace. Respect the sublime.

98 Cantate Domino

1 Sing to the Lord a new song, *
for he has done marvelous things.
2 With his right hand and his holy arm *
has he won for himself the victory.
3 The Lord has made known his victory; *
his righteousness has he openly shown in the sight of the nations.
4 He remembers his mercy and faithfulness to the house of Israel, *
and all the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.
5 Shout with joy to the Lord, all you lands; *
lift up your voice, rejoice, and sing.
6 Sing to the Lord with the harp, *
with the harp and the voice of song.
7 With trumpets and the sound of the horn *
shout with joy before the King, the Lord.
8 Let the sea make a noise and all that is in it, *
the lands and those who dwell therein.
9 Let the rivers clap their hands, *
and let the hills ring out with joy before the Lord,
when he comes to judge the earth.
10 In righteousness shall he judge the world *
and the peoples with equity.

Pippa Middleton:
Conquers the Matterhorn

Purezensu o hoji 

I will let freedom for justice ring.
It is for goodness in truth that I will sing.

Every day will be blessed for the youth of the truth. 
Reality will not be a profit from destruction sleuth.

Greatness is raised. Excellence is to be praised.
Let love live to raise praise for divine ways.

One generation will pass praise to another.
Hearts will still. Prayer will be uttered.

Wonder at the splendor of practical majesty.
Rhapsody will not be found in economic travesty.

Preeminence will go before your work.
The reverence of semblance will just go berserk.

Remembrance of ascendance to preserve your nerve
will shape the excellent essence of your verve.

Graciousness is full of compassion.
Great kindness will become the new fashion.

Slow to anger, but quick to insight
will become the height of passionate delight.

Let your love show for the world to see.
You will shine like the sun. You'll be the marquee.

Exalt in the remembrance of excellence.
The pleasure of your presence will reach divine resemblance.

People will know the majesty of justice.
Fairness will become the new substance.

Power will grow to attain greatness in height.
Peace on earth will be the bursting birth in your sight.

This power will shower you with strength.
You will know the custody of love by its length.

Faithfulness in word leads to mercy in deed.
The Swede will plead with the steed for more speed.

Those who fall will be given a hand.
Mercy with truth will fill the blessed land.

Food will be given in due season.
The need to decrease greed is sufficient reason.

The needs of the many outweigh the wants of the few.
Satisfaction will be rendered for the mighty Sioux too.

Rightness is surrendered to those who desire it.
This can be employed. You won't want to fire it.

Preservation is offered without reservation
for the creation of vocation without indignation.

Profit from the threat of doom and destruction will no longer be rendered.
The wicked will be wanting for the terms of surrender.

My mouth will sing praise for the rays from the sun.
The fight will be fought; our victory won.
