Oh Great Spirit
Whose voice I hear in the winds
And whose breath gives life to the world
I come to you as one of your many children.
I am small and weak
I need your strength and your wisdom.
May I walk in beauty.
Make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things that you have made
And my ears flock to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may know the things you have taught your children,
The lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
Make me strong so that not to be superior to my brothers,
But to be able to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me ever ready to come to you with straight eyes
So that when life fades like the fading sunset
My spirit may come to you without shame.
