  1. May all the veils before my eyes be lifted,
    So that I may see you,
    So that I may know you for my sister, my brother,
    Standing here before me,
    Standing here beside me.
  2. May all the veils before your eyes be lifted,
    So that you may see me,
    So that you may know me for your sister, your brother,
    Standing here before you,
    Standing here beside you.
  3. May all the veils before our eyes be lifted,
    So that we may see each other,
    So that we may know that we are sisters and brothers,
    Walking on together,
    Walking on together.
