This hymn speaks the praises, not only of St. Michael, but likewise of St. Gabriel, St. Raphael, and of all the blessed spirits in general.

DIRECTIONS

O Christ! the glory of the angels, the Creator and Redeemer of mankind ! grant that we may ascend to the happy thrones of the heavenly citizens.

May Michael, the angel of peace, come from heaven into this our temple, bring us sweet peace, and drive dismal war back again to hell.

May Gabriel, the angel of strength, come and rout our ancient foe; may he often visit the heaven-loved temples which the triumphant Jesus has placed throughout the world.

May Raphael, our heavenly physician, descend and visit us, that he may heal all that are infirm and direct our faltering steps in the path of life.

May the Virgin Queen of peace, the Mother of light; may the holy choir of angels; may the bright court of heaven ever assist and protect us.

May the Godhead ever blessed of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, whose glory is proclaimed through the whole world, grant us this our prayer. Amen.
