Praise to the spirit of the wind
Praise to the Senior Mother of Oyo,
One who speaks messages from other realms into our ears
Warrior Queen of all women,
Always protect me with your strong medicine;
One who brings down the ancestors with Heaven’s wind
Wonderous Winds of Earth and Heaven provide smooth transformation between life and death.
Wonderous Winds of Earth and Heaven assure safe passage between death and life.
Praise to the Mother of Nine. Axé
