Her eyes the glow-worm lend thee,
the shooting stars attend thee;
And the elves also,
whose little eyes glow
like the sparks of fire, befriend thee!

No Will o' the Wisp mis-light thee,
nor snake or slow-worm bite thee!
But on, on thy way,
not making a stay,
since ghost there's none to affright thee.
