Régem archangelórum Dóminum
veníte adorémus.
Fáctum est siléntium in caélo,
Dum dráco commiterétur béllum,
et Míchael pugnávit cum córde,
Et fécit victOriam.
In conspéctu angelórum
psállam tíbi.
Sáncte Míchael,
óra pro nóbis ad Dóminum.

The king of archangels, the Lord:
come, let us praise him.
There was silence in heaven
While the dragon was engaged in war
 And Michael fought with heart,
And brought victory.
In sight of the angels
I will sing praises to you.
Holy Michael,
Pray for us to the Lord.
