A Charm For Stopping Bleeding
: STORIES OF SATAN, GHOSTS, ETC.
: Welsh Folk-lore
Mrs. Reynolds, whom I have already mentioned in connection with a charm
for toothache, gave me the following charm. It bears date April 5,
Our Blessed Saviour Jesus Christ was born at Bethlehem,
By the Virgin Mary,
Baptized in the River Jordan,
By St. John the Baptist.
He commanded the water to stop, and it obeyed Him.
And I desire in the name of Jesus Christ,
That the blood of this vein (or veins) might stop,
As the water did when Jesus Christ was baptized.
