St. Michael, the Archangel,
defend us in the hour of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and the snares of the Devil.
May God restrain him, we humbly pray,
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust Satan down to hell,
and with him all the evil spirits,
who wander through the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
