Alleluia! Christ the Lord ascendeth to heaven, O come, let us worship. Alleluia!
Here is a doxology sung to the same tune as usual (Old Hundredth) but special for Ascension Day:
All praise from ev’ry heart and tongue
To Thee, ascended Lord, be sung;
Whom with the Father we adore,
And Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen.
Psalm 8 is an excellent reading for today.
Please come tonight if you are able to celebrate with members of Trinity Church, even if it is a last minute decision. Let nothing keep you. Come to the feast.
God is gone up with a merry noise, Alleluia, alleluia.
And the Lord with the sound of the trump. Alleluia, alleluia.
Christ has gone up on high, alleluia.
And hath led captivity captive, alleluia.
And so we begin this beautiful and joyful season of Ascensiontide.
