Miigwetch Mno Bimaadiziwin

(Thank you for this Good Life)

I was taught so long ago
To be the man I am today
Everything I’ve come to know
I give thanks when I pray

For my parents, for my friends
I am blessed to learn from them
We can take this time to send
A song of thanks that may transcend

Leading a life so filled with Love
Whispers of strength from up above
To feel the raindrops on my face
Is to know this amazing grace

Chorus:
Miigwetch mno bimaadiziwin
G’zhemnidoo, niikaanii.
This is what we’re living for
Life keeps giving more and more

When it’s time to give our lives
To our children’s laughs and cries
We know what it means to be
In Anishinabe’s family tree

Raise up our boys and our girls
Place them gently on the world
Give them the best life that you can
Be the best Moms and Dads.

Soon it’s time to leave this place
Have no regrets, have no pain
When you leave the Western Door
You will look back and you’ll adore

Chorus:
Miigwetch mno bimaadiziwin
G’zhemnidoo, niikaanii.
This is what we’re living for
Life keeps giving more and more
