The sun embraces my body with its warmth;
Love songs reach my ears, whispered by the breeze;
The scent of the turf greets my nostrils,
And the fresh dew kisses my lips in the morning.
Before me, the green hills meet the blue sky,
For I am Man, Controller of the Universe.

I dreamt once of a dreadful dragon
Dragging its fiery tail upon the Earth;
I dreamt of an angry heavy hand hitting his kin;
I dreamt of an orb that is offered to me,
An orb that I take in my hand,
For I am Man, Controller of the Universe.

Unto me all creatures come in procession;
I give them purpose, for they are but clay.
Only they shall meet submission; I know no such thing.
The serpent smiles coyly at me;  
In his wisdom, he knows who I am:
He knows I am Man, Controller of the Universe.
