A MICHAELMAS HYMN

BLESSED MICHAEL hear our Prayer.
Take beneath thy wings
Creatures, sorely needing care,
Furry, feathery things.
Let the radiant legions speed
Far and wide to seek
Those oppressed with none to heed,
Innocent and weak.
Let all frightened children stand
With an angel hand-in-hand.
When the old and lonely sigh,
Thinking none can hear,
Great Archangel be close by
Dreary hearts to cheer.
Grant to each an angel friend
Swift to succour and defend.

Kathleen Lee

29 September. Dedication of St Michael Archangel.

First appeared in The Ark, Vol. XXX, No 2, Autumn 1967.
