The Sacred Pipe

(This song is from a tape recorded by Doug Ross, Cree Singers)

The Sacred Pipe of all the tribes
Portrays peace and harmony
Also signifies the alter of God’s people
From which the gifts are offered up to Him.

(Chant) Way Ya, Hay Ya, Way Ya Hoo
Way Ya, Hay Ya, Hoo oo oo

Way Ya, Hay Ya, Way Ya Hoo
Way Ya, Hay Ya, Hoo

The Sacred Pipe of all the tribes
Stands for truth and purity
And it bears up your prayers and your sacredness
Where in your soul shines like Manitou
(Chant)

The Sacred Pipe of all the tribes
Represents every man, woman and child
Giving birth to the life bread of all creation
And all of us rejoice with our Lord
(Chant)
