Because it is the diamondlike mind,
Are equal to those who accomplish
The three grades of repentance; thus Shan-tao teaches."
I sing a Song of Praise and Worship
To my Lord and Savior Amida Buddha
He is truly the Savior of all who suffer
None will fail to be saved by Him
As in fact they already are
Only the day and time remain
When they will accept His great Gift!
I kneel before my Savior Amida
I place my hands in reverent Gassho
I thank Amida for His great Gift
Of faith-mind consciousness, Shinjin,
Leading to my Birth in the Afterlife
In His Wondrous Land of Peace and Bliss
As a fully Enlightened Buddha!
Once I have joined Amida Buddha
In His Pure Land of True Enlightenment
I will work with Him tirelessly
In the Great Work of leading all beings
To Enlightenment through His Great Vow
That accepts one and all, rejects none,
A truly Universal Vow!
Thank You, Amida Buddha,
The great Gift You have given me
Is priceless beyond compare,
Is truly a wondrous Miracle,
A Gift of Your Boundless Compassion
And Matchless Perfect Wisdom:
Amida, My Lord and Savior!
