Sovereign from the beginning,
hear My prayer;
my soul, my heart are thirsting for you;
my gaze longs to see you,
I look to no one else,
for there is no god to compare You with,
nothing is greater than you,
since you alone are stupendously great;
for this, gather the nations
to give thanks and praise to Your Holy Name
around one single Tabernacle,
let them offer Your Sacrifice together
to Our Father in heaven,
in one voice and in the same Spirit;
Guardian of our soul,
wonderfully strong, unconquerable,

may the whole of Your creation
serve You in the Most Holy Trinity;
grant us this blessing. Amen.
