To the Great Spirit

Lakota Prayer

Grandfather Great Spirit,
all over the world the faces of living ones are alike.

With tenderness they have come up out of the ground.
Look upon your children that they may
face the winds and walk the good road to the
Day of Quiet.

Grandfather Great Spirit,
fill us with the Light.

Give us the strength to understand,
and the eyes to see.

Teach us to walk the soft earth as relatives to all that live.
