O CHRIST! THE GLORY OF THE ANGEL CHOIRS
O Christ! the glory of the Angel choirs,
Of man the Maker and Redeemer blest!
Grant us one day to reach your kingdom bright
And in your glory rest.
Angel of Peace! O Michael, from above,
Come down, amid the homes of men to dwell;
And banish wars, with all their tears and blood,
Back to their native Hell.
This grace on us bestow, O Father blest;
And you, O Son by an eternal birth:
With you, from both proceeding, Holy Ghost,
Whose glory fills the earth.
Let us pray. O God, you arrange in wonderful order the functions of angels and of men; grant to us as protectors on earth those who serve you forever in heaven. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
