Navajo Prayer

This beautiful Navajo prayer was sent to me, its original source unknown. Blessings upon the writer, the sender, and all who read it.

With your feet I walk

I walk with your limbs

I carry forth your body

For me your mind thinks

Your voice speaks for me

Beauty is before me

And beauty is behind me

Above and below me hovers the beautiful

I am surrounded by it

I am immersed in it

In my youth I am aware of it

And in old age I shall walk quietly

The beautiful trail.

Amen.
