天つ神 国つ神 八百万神等共に 聞こし食せ
Oh Heavenly Gods, Earthly Gods, may the myriad of gods listen to my plea.

罪と云ふ罪は在らじと
Please make it so that every sin no longer exist.

高山の伊褒理 短山の伊褒理を?き別け 聞こし食さむ
Please listen and fulfill my plea as they break past the clouds and fog of both the high mountains and the low mountains.

罪と云ふ罪は在らじと
Please make it so that every sin no longer exist.

直き真心持ちて 道に違ふことなく
Maintain a honest and sincere heart and don’t stay off.

愛し愛し我が子よ

Live a healthy life within this forest where we took a vow together.

安らぎ給え和ぎ給え永久の時を刻む杜に

稲穗の海 豐饒の雨
The sea of rice. The fertile rain.

娘達の祈り 男達の勤しみ
The prayer of the women. The hard work of the men.

月は微笑み 陽は暖かく
The smile of the moon. The warmth of the sun.

来るみあれに喜び集う
All of them gather delightfully in anticipation of God.

罪と云ふ罪は在らじと

Kannagi is a decent, if generic, anime comedy. The ending theme though, is something really special. Soothing, peaceful, even beautiful, it feels like a quiet, heartfelt prayer.

Lyrics shamelessly lifted from アンスウェラー.
