Ali Larter:

with Your Heart
Kokorokara hajimeru 


Happy are they who seek love in life;
who observe the plan to decrease strife.

Those who walk with integrity in intent
are not bent by what they have spent for lent.

The commandment to love was made for ease in compliance.
It is the most sensible way to build self-reliance.

I wish to increase the triumph of divine alliance.
The law of nature does not reward agreement with violence.

It allows for the sanctity of defense even when it is intense.
It is not for the pretense of prejudice as license to incense.

I will thank you with an unfeigned heart.
It was my heart that got me to do my part.

I will work with your statutes as principles
to find reasons for a persuasion that is invincible.

How is my youth to find cleansing from error in experience?
Knowledge is built with language for those who are serious.

I will seek to know the word with my whole heart.
Reason will make communication an art.

Judgment will infer what the body of evidence allows.
It doesn’t take the ascetic rigor of monastic vows.

I am a stranger here on earth.
I have been so since my birth.

Open my eyes that I may see
the wonders of ingenuity.

Help me to fulfill my goals
be it designing products or filling holes.

I have taken great delight in the matters of discovery.
The need for sufficient nutrition was learned in recovery.

I will meditate to watch the rise and fall of breath.
Spirit will help me to pass each test.

You have rebuked the insolent.
They will be corrected, until they repent.

Turn shame from me and expose their plot.
I obeyed the law. They did not.

The error of the plot against me
will be shown and seen as a deceitful plea.

Deceit is not growth in hope
for reward with honor to interlope.

The principles of love will be known
as truth that can be shown.

Aleph Beati immaculati

1 Happy are they whose way is blameless, *
who walk in the law of the Lord!

2 Happy are they who observe his decrees *
and seek him with all their hearts!

3 Who never do any wrong, *
but always walk in his ways.

4 You laid down your commandments, *
that we should fully keep them.

5 Oh, that my ways were made so direct *
that I might keep your statutes!

6 Then I should not be put to shame, *
when I regard all your commandments.

7 I will thank you with an unfeigned heart, *
when I have learned your righteous judgments.

8 I will keep your statutes; *
do not utterly forsake me.
Beth In quo corrigit?

9 How shall a young man cleanse his way? *
By keeping to your words.

10 With my whole heart I seek you; *
let me not stray from your commandments.

11 I treasure your promise in my heart, *
that I may not sin against you.

12 Blessed are you, O Lord; *
instruct me in your statutes.

13 With my lips will I recite *
all the judgments of your mouth.

14 I have taken greater delight in the way of your decrees *
than in all manner of riches.

15 I will meditate on your commandments *
and give attention to your ways.

16 My delight is in your statutes; *
I will not forget your word.

Gimel Retribue servo tuo

17 Deal bountifully with your servant, *
that I may live and keep your word.

18 Open my eyes, that I may see *
the wonders of your law.

19 I am a stranger here on earth; *
do not hide your commandments from me.

20 My soul is consumed at all times *
with longing for your judgments.

21 You have rebuked the insolent; *
cursed are they who stray from your commandments!

22 Turn from me shame and rebuke, *
for I have kept your decrees.

23 Even though rulers sit and plot against me, *
I will meditate on your statutes.

24 For your decrees are my delight, *
and they are my counselors.
