To pay respect to others—
You, O Meishu-sama, taught us
This is key to one’s faith.
Paying due respect to our fellow humans
Was the only respect I thought there was to pay,
The only respect I thought was precious.
Through your life examples, O Meishu-sama,
I learned that
I need to pay due respect to God!
Allow me to pay my due respect to You, O God,
Who exist at the center of all creation
And of all human beings!
It is only when we pay due respect to You, O God,
That we human beings can pay respect to each other.
When we attend a service,
No, actually, regardless of when,
Let us never forget to pay due respect to God our Father.
You, O God, govern the world
Through the name of Messiah
And the holy blood of atonement!
To pay due respect to others
Actually means this:
To return our hearts to God who governs us.
