Oh Great Spirit of the West,
where the sun goes down each day to come up the next,
we turn to you in praise of sunsets and in thanksgiving for changes.
You are the great colored sunset of the red west,
which illuminates us.
You are the powerful cycle,
which pulls us to transformation.
We ask for the blessings of the sunset.
Keep us open to life’s changes.

Oh Great Spirit of the South,
spirit of all that is warm and gentle and refreshing,
we ask you to give us this spirit of growth,
of fertility, of gentleness.
Caress us with a cool breeze when the days are hot.
Give us seeds that the flowers,
trees and fruits of the earth may grow.
Give us the warmth of good friendships.
Oh Spirit of the South,
send the warmth and the growth of your blessings.
