All heaven with its power --
The sun with its brightness --
The snow with its whiteness --
The fire with all the strength it hath --
The lightning with its rapid wrath --
The winds with their swiftness --
The sea with its deepness --
The rocks with their steepness --
The earth with its starkness --
All these I place --
Between myself and the powers of darkness.
