On Níwum Englisce, se letania is swá:

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

And ic on Ealdne Englisc hine awende swá:

Ne sceal ic forhtian.
Fyrhto is se módbana.
Fyrhto is se lýtla déað þe eallhryre bringð.
Ic stande wið mínum fyrhto.
Ic hí lǽte ofer mé and ðurh mé.
Ðonne séo bið gegán fram, ðonne acirre ic ðæt innéage, to séonne his swaðe.
Ðǽr séo fyrhto bið gegán, ðǽr byð náwht.
Ána ic ðǽr gewunige.
