In the video you will hear a part of the Psalm 24 (Psalm 23 in Greek numbering) from the Book of Psalms ("The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein"...):
"Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory".
