Speak Lord: King of all

DSC03731 Worcester Cathedral

The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.

The Lord is king, let earth rejoice,
let all the coastlands be glad.
Cloud and darkness are his raiment;
his throne, justice and right.

The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.

The mountains melt like wax
before the Lord of all the earth.
The skies proclaim his justice;
all peoples see his glory.

The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.

For you indeed are the Lord
most high above all the earth,
exalted far above all spirits.

The Lord is king, most high above all the earth.

Psalm 96:1-2,5-6,9

Responsorial Psalm for the Feast of the Transfiguration

The two poles for Christian experience of God are the utterly transcendent and the profoundly imminent: God is entirely other and also wholly present.

The heavens symbolise this. They cover and embrace us and everywhere we look – and yet rooted on earth however high we reach we cannot touch.

These two poles of experience are made one in Christ – fully human and born of a woman; and fully divine, Son of the Father, begotten and not made.

In his love he reaches out to draw to draw us into a new communion of love.
