A Japanese Version Of The Twenty-Third Psalm

Feb 10, 2016 1450

The Lord is my pace-setter. I shall not rush.
He makes me stop for quiet intervals; He provides me
with images of stillness, which restore my serenity.
He leads me in ways of efficiency through
calmness of mind; His guidance is peace. Even
though I have a great many things to accomplish
each day. I will not fret, for His presence is here.

His timelessness, His all-importance, will keep me in

He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst
Of my activity by anointing my mind with His oil of
tranquillity; my cup of joyous energy overflows.

Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the
Fruit of my hours; I shall walk in the pace of the
Lord and dwell in His house forever.

Toki Miyashiro
