1. The Path of Compassion (慈悲的心路)
From suffering, compassion grows
In times of change, our wisdom’s being challenged
In trying times, resilience shines
From life’s events, patience is learned
In puzzlement, we search for truth
Seek improvement through an open heart  
Love and virtue will guide us forward
Eliminate all sorrows and heart aches
From suffering, compassion grows

In times of change, our wisdom’s being challenged
In trying times, resilience shines
From life’s events, patience is learned
Bless you my friend, for being here
Peace be with us, in this world of kindness
May the hills and rivers be tranquil
May generations to come have their blessings
Tell the story of life’s precious wonder

2. The Spirit of Great Love (普天三無)
There is no one in the world that I don’t love.
There is no one in the world that I don’t trust.
There is no one in the world that I can’t forgive.
All the sorrow, blame, and worry—just let go.

There is no one in the world that I don’t love.
There is no one in the world that I don’t trust.
There is no one in the world that I can’t forgive.
May this Great Love fill the world through all of time.

3. Love Illuminates the World (大愛讓世界亮起來)
Music: Lee Shou Chuen
Lyrics: Lee Tse Heng
English Rewrite: Ross Anthony

Hearts of gold,
Stand in hope reflecting the break of down.
The sun’s rays,
Love illuminates the world.

Become one with truth and life,
Feel for those who feel pain.
Find the voice of your hearts and sing,
Mend to each kind thought two wings.
Sun thru rain makes a rainbow.
Love thru heats makes,
Love illuminates the world.

Day and night kindness glowing.
Blue and white wrapping the globe,
Volunteers worldwide like clouds and sky.

Sun thru rain makes a rainbow.
Love thru heats makes,
Love illuminates the world.

Become one with truth and life,
Feel for those who feel pain.
Find the voice of your heart and sing,
Mend to each kind thought two wings.

Love thru hearts a rainbow.
Love thru heats makes,
Love illuminates the world.

Day and night kindness glowing.
Blue and white wrapping the globe,
Volunteers worldwide like clouds and sky.

A waterfall
Of “thank yous” flow for
velvet nights of peace.
Then each new day,
Love illuminates the world.

A waterfall
Of “thank yous” flow for
velvet nights of peace.
Then each new day,
Love illuminates the world.

4. Prayer (祈禱)
Music: Kuo Meng Yong
Lyrics taken from Master Cheng Yen’s discourse

In my heart, I feel deep gratefulness
All my heart is filled with sincere prayer
From all corners of the world
Let us join our hearts and pray
For a world of harmony and peace

In my heart, I feel deep gratefulness
May all the Buddhas hear my prayer
All united with one heart
Let us end our hate with love
May there be no suffering year after year

For my heart, I pray
May we join our hands, our hearts as one
Spread the seeds of Great Love
Nurture wisdom evermore
Let us fill the world with hope

In my heart, I feel deep gratefulness
May all the Buddhas know my prayer
All united with on heart
Let us end our hate with love
May there be no suffering year after year.

5. A World Filled With Warmth (溫暖滿人間)
When you reach out your hands,
to help those who are in need
Your life will surely change,
because you have opened your heart
Our hearts feel grateful,
the world is filled with warmth
The world changes just as we do,
forming a circle of love

When you reach out your hands,
'cause you need a helping hand
Perhaps you'll meet again,
a hand you once held before

6. Blue Earth (藍色地球)
Winter comes early
before summer is gone.
Who has upset season’s clock?
Up in the sky,
only greyness is seen.
Grassland’s greenness, how has it gone?
If we keep our aloofness,
all will become deserts, and oases be gone.

Now!  Yes,  this moment!
We have to act.
To care, to understand, and to save.
This beautiful blue earth,
belongs to you and me.
All its creatures,
are our good friends.

This beautiful blue earth,
needs our efforts for its survival.
So that its heritage,
can be passed on.

With polar ice fast melting,
land covered by rising sea,
hole in ozone layer,
forests becoming scarce,
animals without their habitats;
as most endowed, what have we done?
