On the morrow the sins of the earth shall be washed away, and the Saviour of the world will be our King.
The Lord cometh! Go ye out to meet Him, and say How great is His dominion, and of His kingdom there shall be no end! He is the Mighty God, the Ruler, the Prince of Peace, Alleluia!
On the morrow ye shall be saved, saith the Lord God of hosts.
The Saviour of the world shall rise like the sun, and come down into the womb of the Virgin as the showers upon the grass. Alleluia.
