Our Ancestors' prayer

This is the prayers
of our fathers
They've prayed this for us
That we go beyond their success
That we climb their hills
to our mountains
And this we hope for our 
Even our children's children
When we go beyond and rest
Let this prayers be done
When our bones are weak
and the dust ready for dust
Let it be done
From ages to ages
Like the passover of the jews
It is the creed of our fathers.
