Chango brave warrior,
god of fire, lightning and lightning,
you who have the power over the enemy
don't let them dañaro harm,
you who destroy the enemies,
and you are invincible and your orders are laws:
protect me, help me, keep me away from them.
Chango, you make all the lands shine
and for you there are no closed roads,
guide my steps and open my paths,
that neither spirit nor visible enemy
destroy my life,
deliver me from all their wickedness,
that his bad thoughts and magic
they do not come to me,
that no mortal or immortal can defeat me,
I ask you, my father, Chango
May they be dominated, tamed and humiliated
those who come to me with evil,
protect me and defend me, my father, Chango.
I conjure the seven rays of Chango,
by the holy name of the Almighty,
to make hearts tremble
of my adversaries and enemies.
I conjure you, oh mighty Santa Barbara,
so that your eyes are mine,
and my eyes are yours.
Make that no evil entity can reach me,
make your rays shake the dwelling
of those who fight me,
dissolve all obstacles and impediments.
Oh mighty Chango:
combine your forces with mine
so that the power of the evil one is withdrawn.
