The mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.@Psalm 50:1

St. Austin, Gregorian chant, arranged in the Bristol Tune Book, 1876 ( pdf nwc).

Lo! the mighty God appearing,
From on high Jehovah speaks!
Eastern lands the summons hearing,
O’er the west His thunder breaks:
Earth beholds Him!
Universal nature shakes!

Zion, all its light unfolding,
God in glory shall display:
Lo! He comes! nor silence holding,
Fire and clouds prepare His way:
Tempests round Him!
Hasten on the dreadful day!
