Earth and Sea
Language: English  after the Inuktitut (ᐃᓄᒃᑎᑐᑦ) 
Holy, Holy, Ah, Ah,
Holy Holy Mother Earth
the trees and all nature
are witnesses of all your thoughts and deeds.
The great sea has set me adrift
It moves me as the weed in a great river
Earth and the great weather move me
have carried me away
and move my inward parts with joy.
