Aho Mother Earth our guiding direction

Your Spirit encircles our lives

Your Wisdom gives us discernment It guides us to sustenance

Aho Mother Earth You console our people, You better us

we dance when our land is parched

we sing when You give us rain

the warmth of the star of heaven shines

food and shelter You provide

Aho Mother Earth You will lead us to salvation

we trust in You Aho.

—Micah Johnson
