Merciful Madre, guide us on the Mother Road.
When we are lost, bring us, please,
to the next step on our path to you.
Mother Luminosa, when life grows cold and harsh,
cover us with your starry mantle.
When the road is obscured with fog,
shine your rayos upon it.
Black Madonna, burn away our fears
of the unknown twists ahead.
Tender Guardian, remind us to rest,
send rain to slake dry lips, hard hearts.
Bountiful One, when we go astray,
lift us from the ditch of depression,
set us again on the way.
Medicine Mother, when we lie on the road
injured and vulnerable, tend us.
Woman Who Mends, send us Samaritans
and forge us into the same.
When we meet the injured of spirit,
Holy Teacher, put it in our hearts
to see beyond their posturing and crimes.
Generous One, help us to stop to bandage wounds
and give your word of encouragement to the sad.
Companion of the heart, walk with us
so we do not feel abandoned.
Goddess Mother of the Crossroads,
Bring us home, bring us home.
