Yemoja, mother of the fishes,

Mother of the waters on the earth.

Nurture me, my mother

Protect and guide me.

Like the waves of the ocean,

wash away the trials that I bear.

Grant me children.

Grant me peace.

Let not the witches devour me.

Let not evil people destroy me.

Yemoja, mother of all,

Nurture me my mother.
