"In Beauty May I Walk" - Navajo (Dineh) prayer
By Navajo Prayer, sung by "Minkie"
Monday, Mar 22, 2010
This is a song that I wrote to use in a story I'm writing. I used the famous Navajo (Dineh) prayer 'In Beauty May I Walk' but the music is mine. Sorry for the bad sound quality, I don't have a very good microphone at the moment.
"In beauty may I walk;
All day long may I walk;
Through the returning seasons may I walk.
Beautifully will I possess again
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk;
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk;
With dew around my feet may I walk.
With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty above me may I walk
With beauty all around me,
may I walk.
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, lively;
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, living again...
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty."
