VERSE 1:
yemaya asesu, asesu yemaya.
yemaya asesu, asesu yemaya.
yemaya o lo do, o lo do yemaya.
yemaya o lo do, o lo do yemaya.

PRAYER TO YEMAYA:
yemaya! mother of the sea, womb of creation!
we gaze upon your moonlight waters, and there we find our own reflections.
wash us clean with your healing mists, and bring us dreams of love and tranquility.
we offer you cornmeal, molasses, and watermelon.

(REPEAT VERSE 1)

VERSE 2:
oya asesu, asesu oya.
oya asesu, asesu oya.
oya o lo do, o lo do oya.
oya o lo do, o lo do oya.

PRAYER TO OYA:
oya! great lady of the winds of change! mistress of disguises!
we come to you with the dark of moon, and you wrap us in your cloak of metamorphosis.
when we emerge we are no longer maidens of spring time, but great warriors of life!
we honor you with offerings of red wine, grapes, and plums!

(REPEAT VERSE 2)

VERSE 3:
oshun asesu, asesu oshun.
oshun asesu, asesu oshun.
oshun o lo do, o lo do oshun.
oshun o lo do, o lo do oshun.

PRAYER TO OSHUN:
oshun! river goddess of love, beauty, and sensuality!
we surrender to your passionate embrace.
immerse us in your flow, and heal our wounded spirits.
we offer you fragrant cinnamon, ripe pumpkin, honey, and oranges.

(REPEAT VERSE 3)

(REPEAT VERSE 1)
