7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

     12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.(KJV)

1. Lord God, we all to Thee give praise, 
Thanksgivings meet to Thee we raise, 
That angel hosts Thou didst create 
Around Thy glorious throne to wait. 

2. They shine with light and heavenly grace 
And constantly behold Thy face; 
They heed Thy voice, they know it well, 
In godly wisdom they excel. 

3. They never rest nor sleep as we; 
Their whole delight is but to be 
With Thee, Lord Jesus, and to keep 
Thy little flock, Thy lambs and sheep. 

4. The ancient Dragon is their foe; 
His envy and his wrath they know. 
It always is his aim and pride 
Thy Christian people to divide. 

5. As he of old deceived the world 
And into sin and death has hurled, 
So he now subtly lies in wait 
To ruin school and Church and State. 

6. A Roaring lion, round he goes, 
No halt nor rest he ever knows; 
He seeks the Christians to devour 
And slay them in his dreadful power. 

7. But watchful is the angel band 
That follows Christ on every hand 
To guard His people where they go 
And break the counsel of the Foe. 

8. For this, now and in days to be, 
Our praise shall rise, O Lord, to Thee, 
Whom all the angel hosts adore 
With grateful songs forevermore.
