Today's Ancient Prayer, is not very ancient, written in 1941. But I thought it was beautiful and wanted it to be my meditation today. God's great blessings to you.

To Jesus Christ our Sovereign King
who is the world's salvation,
All praise and homage do we bring
and thanks and adoration

Your reign extend O King benign,
to every land and nation;
For in your kingdom Lord divine
Alone do we find salvation

To you and to your Church, great King
We pledge our heart's oblation;
Until before your throne we sing
In endless jubilation

Christ Jesus, Victor!
Christ Jesus, Ruler!
Christ Jesus, Lord and Redeemer
Msgr. Martin Hellriegal, 1941
