I received breath
When I was born into this world.
Oh, how wrong I was
In believing that it is the only breath!
Before setting out in Your work of Creation,
You, O God,
Granted Your breath to everything.
I know the following truth, O Lord:
We breathe in when You breathe out,
And we breathe out when You breathe in.
O how precious it is!
The breathing of Meishu-sama
Who was born anew is within us!
The breath of eternal life!
Allow me, O God, to receive it
Together with all humanity and all things!
