Save Me, Guide Me



Save me, shield me, faithful journey,
from my own lies and from our era.
Protect me, you, Angel and Guardian,
but you, White Cloud, guide me.


Keep me from thunder, hurricane,
immaculate truth, give me light.
Don't overlook me, little dove,
when you send us a sign from the heights.


Forgive me, twilight,
don't pierce me, spear of nightmares.
Don't bless me with madness,


wake me, morning star.
