This hymn not only speaks of St. Michael but of all the blessed spirits in general.

DIRECTIONS

In the presence of the angels, who obey thee, we praise thee, O Jesus, thou brightness and power of the Father, thou life of our hearts!

'Tis for thee that fights this army of a thousand thousand princes, at whose head is Michael, the Conqueror, the standardbearer of salvation, who unfurls the Cross.

It was Michael that cast the cruel dragon into the depths of hell, and drove the rebels, with their chief, from the heavenly city.

Let us follow this prince against the king of pride; that we may deserve to receive, from the throne of the Lamb, a crown of glory.

Glory be to God the Father, who, by means of the angels, guards those whom the Son hath redeemed and the Holy Spirit anointed.
