God is gone up with a triumphant shout!

Coelos ascendit hodie
Jesus Christus Rex Gloriae:
Sedet ad Patris dexteram,
Gubernat coelum et terram.
Iam finem habent omnia
Patris Davidis carmina.
Iam Dominus cum Domino
Sedet in Dei solio:
In hoc triumpho maximo
Benedicamus Domino.
Laudetur Sancta Trinitas,
Deo dicamus gratias,
Alleluia. Amen.

He has ascended into the heavens today, Jesus Christ, the King of Glory; he sits at the Father's right, he governs heaven and earth. Now all father David's songs have their fulfillment; now the Lord sits with the Lord on the throne of God. In this greatest triumph, let us bless the Lord! The Holy Trinity be praised; let us give thanks to God. Alleluia! Amen.


Alleluia! Not as orphans
Are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! He is near us,
Faith believes, nor questions how:
Though the cloud from sight received him,
When the forty days were o’er,
Shall our hearts forget his promise,
'I am with you evermore'?

Alleluia! Bread of Angels,
Here on earth our food, our stay!
Alleluia! Here the sinful
Flee to thee from day to day:
Intercessor, friend of sinners,
Earth’s redeemer, plead for me,
Where the songs of all the sinless
Sweep across the crystal sea.
