Keei Dalkain -- Son of Man

Another song. I did this one while waiting for a guy to come help me with something. He never showed up, but the song remains!

I didn't sing this one. Here's the original English version.

Maybe someday I'll take the time and collect all the songs in Sandic and sing them and put them in a collection, or something. Mn.

"Son Of Man"

Oh, the power to be strong
And the wisdom to be wise
All these things will
come to you in time

On this journey that you're making
There'll be answers that you'll seek
And it's you who'll climb the mountain
It's you who'll reach the peak

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

Though there's no one there to guide you
No one to take your hand
But with faith and understanding
You will journey from boy to man

In learning you will teach
And in teaching you will learn
You'll find your place beside the
ones you love

Oh, and all the things you dreamed of
The visions that you saw
Well, the time is drawing near now
It's yours to claim in all

Son of Man,
A man for all to see.

"The adults' little one"

Power to be strong,
knowledge to act wisely,
they will show themselves to you
when this is done

along this path you are travelling along
you will find secrets
you will go to the top of the mountains
you will climb very high up!

O little one of the adults, listen here
may your soul fly
you will be honorable when this is done
O child, the doing is what gives you strength

Though no one leads you,
and no one carries you along,
Still, (if you act/are) strong and understanding
the weakness will become strength!

You will teach as you learn,
you will learn as you teach,
you will find your place with what you love!

the dreams that showed themselves to you
those you knew before
they are whispering to you in divine inspiration that you should act quickly
quickly, seize everything (you have dreamed)!

O little one,
what is little shows itself to be big / what is unimportant shows itself to be important
