be to you God,
unmatched in power and greatness,
from and to eternity.
Yours is the glory that excels,
You are the One the only, the ever living, the all sufficient,
the disposer who brings into being and makes to pass away,
the arbiter of will who decrees and decides and determines,
in whose power resides all lapsing and receding and approaching
in the world of things.
are the listener, the observer, who hide us in Your Grace,
who surveys all that we conceal or that we disclose, the
King who bestows and withholds, who brings together and
who puts apart, who enriches and makes poor.
are the One who speaks the eternal word from of old which
never perishes and never fades.
