Our bodies are made from the Earth Herself,
The Bright and Dark Mother, All-Encompassing.
All we have, She gives to us,
So we must give ourselves to Her:
Our bodies indebted in her service.
O Blessed Mother, as I eat Your bounty,
I nourish my body.
O Blessed Mother, as I drink Your waters,
I nourish my soul.
O Holy Mother, as You sustain me,
You honour me with Your gifts,
And so in turn, I shall honour You.
This I pray:
That this food be blessed to my use,
And myself in Your service.
