Prayer of Saint Benedict for Exorcism … a Haunting Melody by Alice B. Clagett

Composed the night of 6 February 2018

Dear Ones,

I composed a somewhat haunting melody for the Latin version of the well known Prayer of Exorcism of Saint Benedict …

 

Here are the words:

“Crux sacra sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux
“Vade retro satana / Numquam suade mihi vana
“Sunt mala quae libas / Ipse venena bibas”

The Wikipedia translation (1) is like this:

“Let the Holy Cross be my light / Let not the dragon be my guide
“Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things
“What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself.”

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

For a more stately, measured melody for the same prayer, see …
