O giver of life to all the world,

Hear me…

I am one of your many children

Let me walk in beauty,

And ever behold the red and purple sunsets

Let me learn the things

You have taught

My people

Let me discern the secrets you have

Hidden in every leaf and stone

I pray for strength

Not to be greater than my sisters and brothers

But to overcome my greatest enemy


Keep my eyes straight

And my hands clean

So that when life fades

As the fading sunset

I may come to you

Without shame
