The above, as featured in 狮城潮音 (DharmaWave) issue #55, magazine of 新加坡佛教居士林 (Singapore Buddhist Lodge), is summarised from the below.

重病偈

重病求西,明智之求。寿尽速生;未尽速愈。  
重病求愈,寿却可尽。寿尽不愈,寿尽不生。

(永愈偈)

得一时愈,仍老病死,终须求生,极乐世界。  
得生极乐,得无量寿,得不败身,真是永愈。

Verses For The Severely Sick

When severely sick seeking the Western Pure Land,
this is the wise aspiration.
If life is ending, there will be swift birth;
if yet to be ending, there will be swift healing.

When severely sick seeking healing,
yet life might be ending.
If life is ending, there will be no healing.
If life is ending, there will be no birth in Pure Land.

(Verses For Lasting Healing)

Attaining healing once,
there is still ageing, sickness and death later,
in the end still needing seeking of birth,
in the Pure Land Of Ultimate Bliss.

As attaining birth in Ultimate Bliss,
attains immeasurable life,
and attains indestructible body,
this is truly lasting healing.
