Great Spirit, behold me (Black Elk)

Hey-a-a-hey! Hey-a-a-hey! Hey-a-a-hey! Grandfather, the Great Spirit, behold me
on earth. It is said that you lived first. You are older than all the prayers
that are sent to you. All things on earth, the four-leggeds, the wings of the
air, belong to you. It is said that you have made all things. Also, you have set
the powers of the four quarters to cross each other…I thus will send up a voice
on behalf of everything that you have made.

    – Black Elk
