HEAVEN ON EARTH

 

 

The ancient temples are aging

their services have served their time

the hour has come

to save their hymnal empire

within us

 

The images are fading

from the age-old icons

may their light be preserved

on our present-day faces

 

Time erodes

the Saviour’s features from the frescoes—

it is time

our own features

became more lifelike and clear

大地上的天堂

 

 

古老的寺庙在凋敝

仪式均已完成

时辰到了

请将那赞美诗的王国

留在我们体内

 

久远的圣像上

颜色在消褪

愿它们的光保存

在我们如今的脸上

 

时间风蚀

壁画上救世主的形象

是时候

让我们自己的容貌

更加生动,明亮
