The whole word is set before you,
moving hands wait to applaud you.
Why do you stand aside?
Don't bury yourself inside!
You were made as a whole,
Put on this world to play your role.
Why is it you hide your face?
Keep putting yourself down as if in disgrace?
Lift up your eyes, look straight ahead,
Do this now before your soul is dead!
Strengthen your heart, strengthen yourself,
Why wrap yourself up and stand on a shelf?
A person's wealth should not be measured, with figures as a sign,
But from the honesty of heart and their actions in time.
Do not think yourself worse than the rest,
As it is caring for others, which is life's test.
