All moons, all years, all days, all winds,
Reach their completion and pass away,
Measured is the time in which
we can praise the splendor of the Trinity.
Measured is the time in which We can know
the benevolence of the Sun.
Measured is the time in which the grid
of the Stars looks down upon us.
And through it, keeping watch over their safety,
The Spirits, abiding within the Stars
measures their fate.
