Lie quietly along the earth
That sky may send its strength through you
Into the spinning planet.
Absorb from eons of tumultuous change
The rhythms pulsing up through fire and water,
    rock and roots of growing things,
Your body filtering with flesh and spirit
Earth's vibrant offering to the sky.
You are the instrument of peace,
The promise of renewal to a time and place
    not of your body
But dependent on your willingness to give yourself
    to earth and sky;
To make belief in goodness shape a thousand years to
May blessings be your gift, both given and received.

Great spirit, father of us all,
Dear mother earth,
Combine your might
And use our love
To make this body whole,
For now and forever.
