Drunken stupor, fading light
Guide me, guide me thro’ the night
Soul foreboding, enticing sprite,
Guides me, guides me to the light.
Sizzling spirit, wistful Wight,
Fills me, fills me, full with fright.
Host of Heav’n clutches tight
Mournful, mournful so contrite.
Fading fast, losing sight,
Help me, help me put this right.
Weakening swiftly, afraid to fight,
Lord, dear Lord, enhance my might.
If I lived before I sleep,
I pray the Devil’s heart to weep.
