"We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty,
who is and who was,
for you have taken your great power
and begun to reign.
18) The nations raged,
but your wrath came,
and the time for the dead to be judged,
and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints,
and those who fear your name,
both small and great,
and for destroying the destroyers of the earth."
