I rebelled against You!
You entrusted Your holy heart to me,
But I used it as if it were mine!
You have forgiven me!
You have forgiven and saved the likes of me
Through the sacred blood of atonement!
Know this everyone:
If we are existences that have been atoned for
Through God’s grace,
We already belong to God!
You, O God, know my everything.
You see through the inmost depths of my heart.
And You will envelop all of it through Your saving hand!
Our consciousness—our heart—is far from perfect.
But it is only through it
That we are able to be born anew
As children of God.
Our hearts wander.
But out of Your love and patience, O God,
You guide us always in the right direction.
To gather the thoughts and feelings of all people
To our hearts so as to bring them salvation—
This, O God, is Your divine work!
To be troubled and worried in life—
This, I believe, is a divine blessing
Of being used in the work of salvation!
Meishu-sama admonished us with the words:
Leave your ego.
He wanted us to set our hearts free—
The hearts that we hardened and closed!
O Meishu-sama, I have now realized!
To leave our ego means to
Surrender our honest, undisguised hearts to God as they are!
Allow me to respond to Your unfailing love,
And offer my heart to You—
All of what I am feeling and sensing now to You—
Promptly and without any hesitation at all!
