O Great Spirit – O Gran Espíritu

Blogged by joan as quote — joan Fri 29 Apr 2011 8:08 am

Oh, Great Spirit,
whose voice I hear in the winds
and whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me.
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 taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.

I seek strength, not to be superior to 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 life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit will come to you
without shame.

Chief Yellow Lark, Lakota Tribe


Oh Gran Espíritu,
cuya voz escucho en el viento
y cuyo aliento da vida al mundo,
soy pequeño y débil,
necesito tu fuerza y sabiduría.

Déjame caminar en la belleza
y deja que mis ojos capten
el atardecer rojo y violeta.

Permite a mis manos respetar
aquello que has creado
y que mis oídos se agudicen
para escuchar tu voz.

Hazme sabio
para que pueda comprender
las cosas que les has enseñado a mi gente.

Déjame aprender las lecciones
que has escondido en cada hoja,
en cada piedra…

Busco fuerza,
no para ser mas que mi hermano
si no para luchar contra
mi mayor enemigo, yo mismo.

Permite que siempre
este dispuesto a venir a ti
con las manos y la mirada limpias

Y cuando mi vida se ponga
como se pone el sol,
mi espíritu vaya a ti
sin vergüenza.

Jefe Alondra Amarilla, Sioux Lacota
