Prayer To Viracocha (Inca)
O conquering Viracocha!
Thou who art without equal upon the earth!
Thou who art from the beginnings of the world until its end!
Thou gave life and valor to men, saying,
"Let this be a man."
And to woman, saying,
"Let this be a woman."
Thou made them and gave them being.
Watch over them, that they may live in health and in peace.
Thou who art in the highest heavens,
and among the clouds of the tempest,
grant them long life,
and accept this our sacrifice,
