This poem draws on Enochian traditions and of course the Book of Enoch.
Angel Raphael, with thine bright blade,
Before me stand, become my aid,
Seraph spirit, make our wounds fade,
Lord of pure peace, the wise one Say'ed,
Help healing RA-PHA-EL.
Thee art above, minds of men,
Will all the wounds, of children stem,
Dark diseases, banish again,
Here to keep us w'ell.
Angel Gabriel, chalice in hand,
From drakes and snakes, protect the land,
Over Cherubs, chubby bright band,
Above Eden's, shores of soft sand,
Give guidance GA-BRI-EL.
Set over all, other powers,
Thee third angel, of the small hours,
Stand behind me, guard the towers,
Angel Michael, with thine red wand,
On my right side, from far beyond,
Big bright blue moon, in starry pond,
Teach me the truth, I pledge my bond,
Speak thy name MI-CHA-El.
Michael show me, thy hidden name,
Crystals of fire, cauldron of flame,
From all the stars, light lumens came,
Lend loving light to Hel.
Angel Uriel, with pentagram,
Left hand angel, of Abraham,
Over the world, over the lamb,
Chief of thine flock, like lord of ram,
Real angel AU-RI-EL.
Guide me show me, all of the law,
Beyond, behind, thine formless door,
The Moon and Sun, their motions saw,
Measuring time's sp'ell.
