Great Spirit Prayer
Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind, whose breath gives life to all the world.

Hear me; 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.

Help me to remain calm and strong in the face of all that comes towards me.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.

Help me seek pure thoughts and act with the intention of helping others.

Help me find compassion without empathy overwhelming me.

I seek strength, not to be greater than 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 may come to you without shame.

— translated by Chief Yellow Lark

I see you
I see you

Walking through a dream, I see you
My light in darkness breathing hope of new life
Now I live through you and you through me, enchanting
I pray in my heart that this dream never ends

I see me through your eyes
Breathing new life, flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life as a sacrifice
I live through your love

You teach me how to see all that's beautiful
My senses touch your world I've never pictured
Now I give my hope to you, I surrender
I pray in my heart that this world never ends

I see me through your eyes
Breathing new life, flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life
I offer my love for you

When my heart was never open
And my spirit never free
To the world that you have shown me
But my eyes could not envision
All the colours of love and of life evermore
Evermore
(I see me through your eyes)

I see me through your eyes
Breathing new life, flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life as a sacrifice
I live through your love
I live through your love

I see you
I see you

The 7th Calvary slaughtered over 150 Indians while running away through the freezing snow, for 3 hours the soldiers on horseback chased the Indians who ran for safety on the river banks along Wounded Knee creek, its was here the Soldiers continued to shoot women & children, shot in the back as they ran for cover - one reporter noted he saw a dead women lying on her back with her baby trying to suckle for Milk. It was told that some of the officers commented, Now we got even for The Battle of The Little Bighorn. I wonder if an official apology has ever been given to the native American relatives & grand children of the Wounded Knee Massacre ?
