Oh lift me up, Grandmother Moon,
Let me bask in silvery light.
Guide my footsteps through the night
Across plain and hill, sea and dune.

Teach me wisdom, Grandmother mine,
For you were born before the earth,
Watching earth's children from our birth.
Grant me knowledge of ancient times.

Teach me love, Grandmother dear.
When this world seems so dark and dim,
And the chance of hope is looking slim,
Let me outgrow both hate and fear.

Teach me patience, Grandmother Sky.
It seems so hard for me to wait
To greet you, at summerland's gate.
I long to grow. I yearn to fly!
