God permitted us to buy and sell,
Using money as a means of exchange
Instead of bartering with things.
As long as you live in the human world,
It is something indispensable.
In order for You, O God, to accomplish salvation,
You unite my thoughts and feelings
Our hearts are one with money.
Unwrapped and without hiding,
I surrender my heart to You, O God.
You, O God, accept our donation,
From whoever it comes and
With whatever thoughts it is done.
What a blessing donation is!
It supplements and helps us—
We who are trying to offer the whole of ourselves to God.
How precious is Your work
That unites even the thoughts and feelings
Of the people of the world to money!
Through the divine work of donation,
Let us serve in the salvation
Of ourselves and all humanity!
Ah, what a joy it is
That I can serve in the divine work of
Creating the future through donation!
Money, all creation and us—
They are all part of Your body, O God!
When all creation revives,
Humanity will be born anew as children of God.
