Ponca Prayer Song

For a few months now, I have been unsuccessful in obtaining a correct phonetic spelling for this Ponca Prayer song. The song that I speak of is on the Millard Clark and Southern Singers cd from the National Veterans Powwow in 1998. I have a somewhat correct translation written down, but was warned by the person who told me that it was not entirely correct.

If you have any information about this song as well, it would be great to know. It it such a reverent and beautiful song, that neglecting the proper way to sing it and its history would be disrespecting the song greatly.

I remember seeing on the cd saying that He Is Coming, and from a rough translation that I have received, I remember the person telling me that the song speaks of a savior coming, since a very reverent man, Old Man Yellow Bear, wrote it.

Anything any of you can do to help out would be great.

Thanks.
