Father of all the good, of all the white
Your emblem is peace
Always give me your wisdom to understand what I cannot
Give me the right word for those who want and want to hear it
Give me patience and resignation, to be able to bear any pain
Give me the tranquility of my spirit
When anger is my counselor and friend
King of all kings
Your kingdom is in heaven
Your glory is hope
Faith and charity are your bonanza
Father of all the saints in the world
Father of all the good, of all the white
Give me your blessing to endure with altitude
What my karma would have thrown my way
Because only I forged it or allowed it to be made
Because only I have to repair it
And no other even if I wanted to.
Because my prize is reserved
It will be the one that deserves me and not another that is fingered
Oh Father Obatalá take care of me and
(Name of individual)
At night watch me and
During the day while I sleep
I trust your holy wing, your protective mantle
I trust in all your power, sovereign redeeming king.
