The Ascension of the Lord

Psalm text (Ps 47:2-3, 6-7, 8-9)

God mounts His throne to shouts of joy, a blare of trumpets to the Lord.

All you peoples, clap your hands,
shout to God with cries of gladness.
For the Lord, the most High, the awesome,
is the great King over all the earth.

God mounts His throne amid shouts of joy;
the Lord amid trumpet blasts.
Sing praise to God, sing praise.
Sing praise to our King, sing praise.

For King of all the earth is God.
Sing hyms of praise.
God reigns over the nations.
God sits upon His holy throne.





Gospel Verse (Mt 28:19a+20b)

Go and teach all nations, says the Lord; I am with you always, until the end of the world.


Psalm text (Ps 97:1-2, 6-7, 9)

The Lord is King, the Most High over all the earth.

The Lord is King; let the earth rejoice;
let the many islands be glad.
Justice and judgments are the foundation of His throne.

The heavens proclaim His justice,
and all peoples see His glory.
All gods are prostrate before Him.

You, O Lord, are the Most High over all the earth,
exalted far above all gods.

Gospel Verse (cf Jn 14:18)

I will not leave you orphans, says the Lord. I will come back to you, and your hearts will rejoice.
