 You alone are God,
You were from of old,
and You will be until eternity, always, first and last,
now and always for ever and ever.
As for You, You are the same,
and Your epoch will not come to an end;
as for You, You are the same,
and Your kingdom will not be abolished,
and Your Power is invincible,
and Your strength is untiring,
and Your magnificence will not be humbled,
and the splendor of Your Name will not be dispelled,
and the praise of Your exalted fame will not be diminished,
and Your light will not be darkened,
and Your decree will not be abrogated.
The pillar of Your word will not be overthrown,
and Your wisdom will not fall into error,
and Your counsel will not be concealed.
You alone are God, God of all;
You alone are God, Lord of all;
You alone are God, King of all;
You alone are God, Creator of all;
You alone are God, Conqueror of all;
You alone are God, Omnipotent;
You alone are God, Slayer of all;
You alone are God, Destroyer of all;
You alone are God, Saviour of all;
You alone are God, Life of all;
You alone are God, Sustainer of all;
You alone are God, Protector of all;
You alone are God, Restorer of all;
You alone are God, Raiser of all;
You alone are God, Supporter of all;
You alone are God, Helper of all;
You alone are God, A righteous God over all creation.
