His dominion is an eternal dominion;
His kingdom endures form generation to generation.
All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing.
He does as he pleases withe the powers of heaven
and the peoples of the earth.
No one can hold back his hand
or say to him, ‘What have you done?’ (Daniel 4:34b-35)
O Lord, King of the nations,
we bow down before You and worship You.
Who can compare with You?
There is none!
Who can compete with You?
No, not one!
All nations and people are like children to You;
and You rule them with justice and righteousness.
Sovereign Lord, take Your rightful place in us today;
rule over our gathering together as our King;
and rule over our lives as King,
letting our words and deeds
speak of Your majesty to all.
