An Indian Prayer

O Great Spirit
Whose voice I hear in the winds
Whose breath gives life
to the entire world?
Hear me!

I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty
and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset

Make my hands respect the things
you have made and
my ears sharp to hear your words
Make me wise so that I may
understand the things you have taught my people

Let me learn the lessons
you have hidden
in every leaf and rock
I seek strength,
not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy

Make me always ready to come
to you with clean hands
and straight eyes.
So when life fades,
as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you
without shame.
