A reading from the book of Daniel.
Daniel wrote down this account of his dream:
I gazed into the visions of the night.
And I saw, coming on the clouds of heaven
one unlike those of this world.
This One came to the Ancient One
and was led into the divine presence.
Thus was conferred sovereignty, glory and dominion,
and all peoples, nations and languages became this One’s subjects.
This sovereignty is an eternal sovereignty which will never pass away,
nor will this empire ever be destroyed.
The Word of God recorded in the book of Daniel.
