In Beauty May I walk

In beauty may I walk.

All day long may I walk.

Through the returning seasons
may I walk…

On the trail marked with pollen
may I walk…

With grasshoppers about my feet
may I walk.

With dew about my feet may I walk.

With beauty may I walk.

With beauty before me, may I walk.

With beauty behind me, may I walk.

With beauty above me, may I walk.

With beauty below me, may I walk.

With beauty all around me, may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty,
lively, may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty,
living again, may I walk.

It is finished in beauty.

It is finished in beauty.

-from the Navajo Nightway Chant
