We thank Him for all the fruits that grow on the trees and vines.
We thank Him for his goodness in making the forests, and thank all its trees.
We thank Him for the darkness that gives us rest, and for the kind Being
of the darkness that gives us light, the Moon.
We thank Him for the bright spots in the skies that give us signs, the stars.
–Harriet Maxwell Converse (1836–1903)
Translated from a traditional Iroquois prayer
