or shot in flesh or shot in blood

or were shot in the body
or were shot in the bone
or were shot in the blood,
or were shot in a limb,

if it were shot of evil spirits,
or if it were shot of elves,
or if it were shot of a witch,

This is a remedy to you for a shot of evil spirits,
this is a remedy to you for a shot of elves,
this is a remedy to you for a shot of a witch;
I will help you.
Fly there spear into the mountain top.
You be healthy,
may Gods help you.
Then take that sax,
put into the liquid.
