Ecce advenit dominator Dominus:
et regnum in manu ejus,
et potestas, et imperium.
Deus judicium tuum regi da:
et justitiam tuam Filio regis.
Reges Tharsis et insulae munera offerunt:
reges Arabum et Saba dona adducent.
Et adorabunt eum omnes reges terrae: omnes gentes servient ei;

Behold the Lord the Ruler is come:
and the Kingdom is in His Hand,
and power, and dominion.

Give to the king Thy judgement, O God:
and to the king's Son Thy justice.

The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents:
the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
