You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Oração ao diabo

Language: Portuguese (Portugu√™s)

Grande deus Satanás, vermelho deus maldito,
Rei do inferno, senhor absoluto das trevas;
Espírito que o mal domina e que ódio leva,
Arrastado após si, pelo eterno infinito;

Grande deus Satanás, minha alma de precito,
Branca de misticismo, à tua alma se eleva,
E reza esta oração cheia de fé, coeva
Da antiga crença azul do boi Ápis, no Egito.

Dizem que se a alma tens de qualquer desgraçado
Em troca tu lhe dás das fortunas o açoite,
E de outros não sei eu que a teu eleito vençam;

Se tanto for mister para que seja amado
Pela dos risos bons, a dos olhos de noite,
Grande deus Satanás, lança-me tua bênção.
