Invocation of St. Michael, the Chief of the Angelic Hosts



"And there was a great battle in heaven, Michael and his angels fought with the Dragon . . . and that Great Dragon, the Old Serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, was cast unto the earth, and h1s angels were thrown down with him."--Apoc. xii. 7:

Thou Prince of the angelic Hosts,
I lift my heart to thee.
And call to mind with grateful soul
Thy wondrous victory.

Chorus: Oh first of all the mighty Seven,
Before thy throne we bow,
And worship thee amidst the light
That streameth from thy brow.

For when dark Satan and his hosts 
Rebelled against our Lord, 
Thy mighty war-cry pierced the dark: 
Who is like God adored?

Chorus: Oh first of all the mighty Seven,
Before thy throne we bow,
And worship thee amidst the light
That streameth from thy brow.

In that great day of battle fierce,
When Satan lost his crown, 
Thou with thy faithful Hosts of light 
Didst drive the rebels down.

Chorus: Oh first of all the mighty Seven,
Before thy throne we bow,
And worship thee amidst the light
That streameth from thy brow.

Down from the gleaming Paradise,
Gate of the sinless world.
Down to the gloomy prison-house,
In dim confusion hurled.

Chorus: Oh first of all the mighty Seven,
Before thy throne we bow,
And worship thee amidst the light
That streameth from thy brow.

The splendour of thy flaming sword
Flashed through the wondering night; 
Thy golden armour's lightning-gleam 
Burned like a sea of light.

Chorus: Oh first of all the mighty Seven,
Before thy throne we bow,
And worship thee amidst the light
That streameth from thy brow.

Now in thy peerless majesty,
Where warfare is not known. 
Thou reignest in eternal rest 
Before the sapphire throne.

Chorus: Oh first of all the mighty Seven,
Before thy throne we bow,
And worship thee amidst the light
That streameth from thy brow.
