Oh, Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds
and whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me, for 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 voice.
 

Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have thought my people.
 

Learn me the lesson you have hidden
in every leaf and every rock.
 

I seek strength,
not to be greater then my brother
but to fight my greatest enemy – myself.
 

Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
 

So when light fades,
as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame.
 

Ojibwa gebed
