次序 sequence: 1,2,3,4,5
因為戴著天的愛 因為受著師的恩 1Because we’re cloaked in God’s love; We've experienced Teacher’s grace
所以愛護著天下蒼生 感恩著師的傳承 We must cherish all life under Heaven; Appreciate Teacher’s dharma
因為知道師的路 因為學著師風度 Because to know Teacher’s way; To learn Teacher’s demeanor
所以甘願著繼承師愿 重覆著師的腳步 We're willing to fulfill Teacher’s wish—follow in Teacher’s footsteps
 
因為道真的感應 因為信愿不曾停 2Since Dao is so responsive; Since a true wish never ends
所以行証自己的承諾 克服著一切的際遇 We must fulfill our undertakings; Rise above good and bad fortunes
沒有歲月可蹉跎 沒有回頭的藉口 There is no more time to waste; No excuse for turning back
所以安心地勇往前走 莫懷疑當初的念頭 So bravely go forth with peace of mind—don’t doubt one's original intent
 
無明心中的憂愁 纔是心路的關口 3The anxiety of ignorance—is a mental barrier
也許當下看清楚 會感天人的扶助 Perhaps in seeing clearly now—we’ll appreciate Heaven’s help
所以放下那執囿 路上經驗容德厚 So let go of attachments; Experience yields profound virtues
一片真心地投入 素位而行中感受 We must invest in the true heart; We must uphold our duties
 
因為辦著天的事 因為圓著人的失 4As we perform Heaven’s work; As we accommodate other’s faults
所以學習著辦事人員 明白著道的位置 We learn to be as Heaven’s helpers; Understand the aim of Dao
因為自己的緣故 因為眾生尚受苦 Because we are imperfect; 'Cause sentient beings still suffer
所以最終要人我成全 付出著師的付出 We must ultimately give of ourselves—in the way that Teacher gives
 
活潑中該守的守 承辦中要修的修 5Stay on guard when we’re at ease; Cultivate in our conduct
自我肯定立足 挺立純全德不孤 Establish our position; Excel in our responsibilities
因為歷練會成熟 因為承擔才成就 Cultivation lets us grow; Commitment lets us achieve
所以是正確的路 沒有放棄的理由 So this is the proper way; There’s no reason to give up
所以是唯一的路 沒有逃避的理由 So this is the only way; There’s no reason to evade
