My grandfather is the fire
My grandmother is the wind
The Earth is my mother
The Great Spirit is my father
The World stopped at my birth and laid itself at my feet
And I shall swallow the Earth whole when I die
and the Earth and I will be one
Hail The Great Spirit, my father
without him no one could exist because there would be no will to live
Hail The Earth, my mother
without which no food could be grown and so cause the will to live to starve
Hail the wind, my grandmother for she brings loving, life-giving rain
nourishing us as she nourishes our crops
Hail the fire, my grandfather for the light, the warmth, the comfort he brings
without which we be animals, not men
Hail my parent and grandparents without which not I nor you nor anyone else
could have existed
Life gives life which gives unto itself a promise of new life
Hail the Great Spirit, The Earth, the wind, the fire
praise my parents loudly for they are your parents, too
Oh, Great Spirit, giver of my life
please accept this humble offering of prayer this offering of praise
this honest reverence of my love for you.
