Zuni Sunrise Call.

Zuni Sunrise Call.


Carlos Troyer (tr). New Mexico, the Land of the Delight Makers, 1920.

 

WAKE ye! arise! life is greeting thee.
Wake ye! arise! ever watchful be.
Mother Life-god, she is calling thee!
Life-god, she is greeting thee!

Mighty Sun-god! give thy light to us,
Let it guide us, let it aid us,
See it rise! See it rise!

How the heart glows,
How the soul delights,
In the music of the sun-light.—
Watch it rise! Watch it rise!

Wake ye, arise, life is greeting thee.
Wake ye, arise, ever watchful be.
Mother Life-god, she is calling thee!
Mother Life-god, she is greeting thee!

Wake ye! arise! life is greeting thee.
Wake ye! arise! ever watchful be.
Mother Life-god, she is calling thee!
Life-god, she is greeting thee!
