It is you, Lord our God, who raised up the Christ above all your creation. It is likewise you who opened for us the Easter joys and thanksgiving because the Ascension of your Son guarantees our victory to become members of his body the Church. Thus the heavenly glory where he precedes us has become our whole life and hope.
Psalm 47:2-3, 6-7, 8-9 (6)
God mounts his throne to shouts of joy: a blare of trumpets for 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 hymns of praise.
God reigns over the nations,
God sits upon his holy throne.
- God mounts his throne to shouts of joy: a blare of trumpets for the Lord.
