Is joy found in Thee and thine or in me and mine? Whose words teach of the path, my life will define Is happiness found, respecting all things, being kind? By seeking a common good of man, with thee in mind Or by achieving goals, success that will benefit me Is this the key to unlock the grace foretold from thee? It seems that many men’s words differ in religious belief Each group’s path shifts, as when wind blows a leaf Which men’s words should I follow, whose thoughts are true Or do these men speak with words, mixed in an evil brew As I think, ponder, on what path I should follow in life You guide my direction, as the "Great Spirit", my fife Let earths wind, water, fire, teach animal, plant and man All lessons they need learn, from the creator of the plan All mankind needs your grace to discern wisdom from folly Some men distort your words to sell tickets on their trolley With "faster is better" and “giving of your life will be holy” Beware the cost of the ride, proceed a little more slowly Wisdom discerns truth, as knowledge comes alive Let your spirit be taught, before man can contrive
