St. Michael the Archangel,

defend us in battle

Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray,

and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,

by the power of God,
cast into hell Satan,

and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
