Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -

cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
