R. Your friends, O Lord, shall make known
the glorious splendour of your reign.
1. All your creatures shall thank you, O Lord,
and your friends shall repeat their blessing.
They shall speak of the glory of your reign
and declare your might, O God,
to make known to men your mighty deeds
and the glorious splendour of your reign. (R.)
2. Yours is an everlasting kingdom;
your rule lasts from age to age. (R.)
3. Let me speak the praise of the Lord,
let all mankind bless his holy name
for ever, for ages unending. (R.)
It was ordained that the Christ should suffer
and rise from the dead,
and so enter into his glory.
