He can command the rings of Saturn



The heavens open up and the lord's spirit.
Came down from heaven
Riding upon majestic clouds
Of fiery lightning bolts that showered the church
with glowing trails of shooting stars and streaks of comets
He then commanded the glowing rings of Saturn.
to come down anointing the sacred icons
with brightly shining halos
He then commanded the eternal flames of the sun.
to come down and light the holy candles
And he commanded the rocks from the sacred land.
to rise up one upon the other establishing his sacred altar blessing us all.
