Your prayer is like sweet-smelling smoke of sage and cedar
Your presence with us is acorn meal,
O holy woman, who prays always, we thank you.
You brought your Society to us long years ago
Your sisters are with us even now, in your name
Your love and prayer help us walk the Red Road
O holy woman, who prays always, we ask your blessing.
Bless us, your Indian children, and stay with us always
Bless our land, Mother Earth, given by Creator
Bless all people who walk on Mother Earth. May we live together in peace.
