Factum est silentium in coelo
dum commiteret bellum draco cum Michaele Archangelo.
Audita est vox millia millium dicentium:
Laus, honor et virtus omnipotenti Deo.

Millia millium ministrabant ei,
et decies centena millia assitebant ei.
Audita est vox millia millium dicentium:
Laus, honor et virtus omnipotenti Deo.
