A Translation of the Japanese Version of the 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my pacesetter, I shall not rush;
He makes me stop and rest 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, His presence is here.

His timeliness,
His all importance will keep me in balance.

He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of activity
by anointing my mind with His oils of tranquility.

My cup of joyous energy overflows.
Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours,
for I shall walk in the pace of my Lord,
and dwell in His house forever.
