- As Brother Sun brightens the day and dispels the darkness of night—shine on those lost in depression or in fear of violence. Let our Brother Sun nourish these plants and each person partaking of the bounty of the crops to come.
- As Brother Wind brings every kind of weather—may farmers and agricultural workers have what they need to produce abundant crops.
- As Sister Water is useful, humble, and pure—may seasonal rains nourish our fields and refresh our Earth.
- As Sister Mother Earth sustains us—may she be respected and cared for by all peoples; may we turn from our wasteful ways.
