Tsegihi

 

House made of Dawn
House made of evening light
House made of dark cloud
House made of male rain
House made of dark mist
House made of female rain
House made of pollen
House made of grasshoppers
Dark cloud is at the door
The trail out of it is dark cloud.
the zigzag lightning stands high upon it.
Male deity!
Your offering i make.
I have prepared a smoke for you.
Restore me feet for me
Restore my legs for me
Restore my body for me
Restore my mind for me
This very day take out your spell for me
Your spell remove for me
You have taken it away for me
Far off it has gone
Happily i recover.
Happily my interior becomes cool.
Happily i go forth.
My interior feeling cool, may i walk
No longer sore, may i walk
Impervious to pain, may i walk
With lively feelings, may i walk
As it used to be long ago, may i walk
Happily may i walk.
Happily, with abundant dark clouds, may i walk.
Happily, with abundant showers, may i walk.
Happily, with abundant plants, may i walk.
Happily, on a trail of pollen, may i walk.
Happily may i walk.
Being as it used to be long ago, may i walk.
May it be beautiful before me,
May it be beautiful behind me,
May it be beautiful below me,
May it be beautiful above me,
May it be beautiful all around me.
In beauty it is finished.
