Lyrics: Anon

Factum est silentium in caelo,
Dum committeret bellum draco
Cum Michaele Archangelo.
Audita est vox milia milium dicentium:
Salus honor et virtus omnipotenti Deo.
Alleluia.

Silence befell heaven,
Whilst a dragon battled
With archangel Michael.
The voice of thousand upon thousand was heard, saying:
Safety, honour and goodness to Almighty God.
Alleluia.
