I’m Calling On You / O Great Spirit

Oh Great Spirit, I’m calling on You
Oh Earth Mother, what else can I do
Open me up, so I can receive
Open me up so I can believe.
Oh Great Spirit, I’m calling on You

Oh Earth Mother, what else can I do
Give me the strength to be just and fair
Give me the strength of the Mother Bear
Oh Great Spirit, I’m calling on You

Oh Earth Mother, what else can I do
Sing me the song that all might be free
Sing me the song of the coyote
Oh Great Spirit, I’m calling on You

Oh Earth Mother, what else can I do
Show me the vision of the Red Tail Hawk
Show me the way to walk my talk
Oh Great Spirit, I’m calling on You

Oh Earth Mother, what else can I do
Open me up, so I can receive
Open me up so I can believe.
Oh Great Spirit, I’m calling on You
