O Lord of Hosts, thou God of Israel,
which sittest upon Cherubin,
thou art the God alone of all the kingdoms of the world;
thou only hast created heaven and earth.

Encline thine ear, Lord, and consider.
Open thine eyes and see.
Deliver us from the hands of our adversaries,
to the intent all the kingdoms of the earth may know
that thou only art the Lord.
So be it.
