Waiting

Chief White Feather stood waiting

With his braves, proud and tall

For a sign from "Great Spirit"

Being their Leader, it was His call


He, held the years of their lives

And the blessings, He would bestow

They looked upward, toward the skies

When He answered. . .They would know


They listened for His voice in the wind

With clean hands, and straight eyes. . .

Asking for wisdom and knowledge

Against the white man. . . His truth or lies


"Grandfather, Great Spirit" they prayed

"You are older than all prayer

All things belong to you, the earth, the air

Signs of you. . . Are everywhere


You have set your powers, on earth

The earth, we know, is our mother

We are waiting for a sign, Grandfather

Is it war, or peace with our brother?


We have been prisonerís in our land

You help us cross difficult roads. . .

You see our plight, you understand

Please unloosen. . .These heavy loads


We wait, Oh Great Spirit. . . To hear

We wish to abide in all your ways

Ruler of land, earth, fire and air

Holder of our lives, day after day!
