Give ear to my voice, my God, and quickly

Watch the door of my mouth for integrity 
Guard my lips and keep my heart from turning

Let the elders guide and correct my way 
Keep my words and actions true I pray

Watch the farmer's plow turn the blessed earth 
Bones of death and signs of rising birth

You are the earth, I am a seed 
Hide me, grow me, love and never leave me
