Heavenly Hosts

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh glorious Seraphim, burning bright
Surrounding the throne with unending light
Your faces and feet covered with wings
Ever fill our minds with love and holy things

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh shining Cherubim, knowledgeable and wise
Show us how to see through the Enemy’s lies
Show us the beauty and glory of God’s creation
Teach us songs to sing in royal jubilation

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh blessed Thrones, humble and meek
Carriers of the royal dais of the God we seek
Make clear to us God’s Will for our personal path
And keep our feet from the distractions we have

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh zealous Dominations, commanding and fierce
With God’s authority you will pierce
Through the Enemy’s chaos like a light
Bringing peace and order to this supernatural fight

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh celestial Virtues, intelligent yet frightening
God gave you power over the stars and lightning
Fill us with wonder and awe at the work of God
And fill our minds with peace as off we nod.

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh obedient Powers, mighty and strong,
Teach us how to tell between right and wrong
And how to recognize the Enemy’s face
So we will not share in his fiery disgrace.

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh formidable Principalities, warriors bold
Protect us until God we behold
In all His majesty, splendor, and glory
To hear the ending of our story

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh fervent Archangels, righteous and fair
All with authority are under your care
And with St. Michael, your illustrious leader,
You are ever ready to battle the great Deceiver.

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.

Oh guardian Angels, swift and kind
Guard the very recesses of our minds
Keep in your living care, we creatures so lowly,
Until we can sing in unison “holy, holy, holy”.

Angels of God, oh glorious host
Protect those who need you most
Guide and teach us ever this day
And keep all of our temptations at bay.
