I lift up my eyes and I look to the mountains
And see by their shadow I'm nothing at all.
The hills tower over me black and forbidding;
The tangles of forest bid me come and fall.

No light may enter those caves, a great fortress,
Their darkness defended by cavern and wall.
A torrent, a flood crashes over the rocks and
The thundering falls drown a voice still and small:

Listen, my child, for I made these great mountains,
The sky far above you, the rocks and the falls,
The tangles of forest, the caves and the crags
And whatever dwells in them; my hands formed them all.

The shadows are emptied of thread for I'm in them
As I am with you where you follow my call.
So lift up your eyes and look over the mountains
And walk in my shadow; I'll not let you fall.

Listen, my child, for I made these great mountains,
The sky far above you, the rocks and the falls,
The tangles of forest, the caves and the crags
And whatever dwells in them; my hands formed them all.
