Prayer to the Lord for Comfort

I raise my hands in prayer to the God,
to him I pray, Lord of the Earth.
He who is the first of any to die,
the first of any to be reborn.
He who rises with the Sun each day
and sets with it each night.
Out of my darkness and death, I call and pray to you,
Lord of All.
Out of my need, I send my voice with honor and longing,
in hope of intercession.
Grant me my prayer, Might One,
you who know what it is to suffer.
Grant me my prayer, Antlered One,
you who are the great river.
