Raison d'être

(1131)  Tumi acho tai mora achi

Lord, as You exist, so we exist.
With life You've filled the green grass, young and tender;
Now all of us, we but pray for Your compassion.

The azure beyond measure of the firmament,
The wrathful grandeur of the wilderness,
The woodland plants, the well-proportioned leaves...
Along with all of them, we go on living.

So that we don't keep forgetting Thee,
Under the spell of egoism's fetters and enemies,[1]
With the strength of just Your name, filling our bosom,
We will obliterate the power of sin.
