Taste and See: Glory

DSC01574 Hermitage St Petersburg 2015

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 psalmist rejoices in God, the living God. Before God all else is passing, having existence only so far as it is rooted in him and permitted by him. As with all else, so with us: without God we are diminished, and ultimately would cease to have existence. But with him we live, and the sign of life in us is joy and love.

Icon. Hermitage, St Petersburg. (c) 2015, Allen Morris.
