I kneel before Your altar not knowing quite what to say,
Into the purification bowl the gift I brought I lay.
I reach out to You with open heart, and with my open mind,
I do not have far to search, for You are always close to find.
I honor You the best I can, pledge You my heart and soul,
Then open up my skin , and give a blood offering in the bowl.**
Great Mother of birth, children and life, I wish from you to learn,
I offer to You all I am, and ask for nothing in return.
