Lyrics: Anon

Factum est silentium in caelo,
Dum committeret bellum draco cum Michaele Archangelo.
Audita est vox millia millium dicentium:
Salus, honor et virtus omnipotenti Deo.

Millia millium minestrabant ei et decies centena millia assistebant ei.
Audita est vox millia millium dicentium:
Salus, honor et virtus omnipotenti Deo.

There was complete quiet in heaven
While the dragon fought with the Archangel Michael.
The voice of a thousand thousand was heard saying:
Health, honour and virtue be to God almighty.

A thousand thousand ministered to him
and ten hundreds of thousands stood before him.
The voice of a thousand thousand was heard saying:
Health, honour and virtue be to God almighty.
