Wash Our Spirits Clean

Monday, November 26, 2012

Dear Joe Riley, amazing purveyor of magnificent poetry to my Inbox each week, said this with this posting, "With so much emphasis on shopping rather than thankfulness I was reminded of this song. I don't mean it as a sermon or condemnation, just a reminder that there is more to life than buying stuff. I invite you to listen:"



Wash Your Spirit Clean
Sung in Cherokee and English
(PLEASE NOTE: the file streams on Internet Explorer,

Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To
Ha Da Hv Si Ni Ja Du Li Sgai
Di Ja Yo Hi Ki La Hi Go Wa Ta
Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To
Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To
hos da hi ta da na de ja du
hi es go hi ge ja de le hi
Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To

Give away the things you don't need
Let it all go and you'll soon see
And you'll wash your spirit clean
Wash your spirit clean

Go and pray upon a mountain
Go and pray beside the ocean
And you'll wash your spirit clean
Wash Your spirit clean

Be grateful for the struggle
Be thankful for the lessons
And you'll wash your spirit clean

Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To
Ha Da Hv Si Ni Ja Du Li Sgai
Di Ja Yo Hi Ki La Hi Go Wa Ta
Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To
Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To
hos da hi ta da na de ja du
hi es go hi ge ja de le hi
Hi Nv Ga La Ja Da Nv To

(from the CD of the same name,
which is the Cherokee word for hummingbird)
