Prayer of Saint Benedict for Exorcism
A Haunting Melody by Alice B. Clagett, 6 February 2018

 

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  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.” –From “Vade Retro Satana,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vade_retro_satana … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported License
