“Modlitwa Słowiańska” (“Slavic Prayer” in English) is a song by Sati Sauri, a Polish singer, composer, and violinist who creates inspiring music based on her interest in Slavic traditions, as well as Indian, and Celtic cultures.
The lyrics of this gentle song touch on the singer’s own roots as she sings her “Slavic prayer” in the Polish language. It also references Mother Earth and her vital role in creation, and echoes a time when people lived more in harmony with nature and the path of the sun.
Translated into English, the lyrics are as follows:
1. O Earth, my Earth, Mother of all creation. Reveal to us the story of your being.
O wind, carry it, carry to all people. May their hearts finally awaken.
2. O Land, my Land, our great fathers lived here. They lived in harmony with nature, the rhythm of the sun and the moon.
They danced with the fire in the starry nights, they wielded wisdom of the Slavic gods.
3. O Land, my Land, my blood is mixed with your blood. It flows, still flows from the source to the ends of the world.
Carry me, carry me through the life, mark the way for me with your heartbeat.
