R. The Lord comes to rule the earth.
1. Proclaim to the nations: “God is king.”
The world he made firm in its place;
he will judge the peoples in fairness. (R.)
2. Let the heavens rejoice and earth be glad,
let the sea and all within it thunder praise,
let the land and all it bears rejoice,
all the trees of the wood shout for joy
at the presence of the Lord for he comes,
he comes to rule the earth. (R.)
3. With justice he will rule the world,
he will judge the peoples with his truth. (R.)
Open our heart, O Lord,
to accept the words of your Son.
