In Ascensiontide


Blessed art thou, O Lord God Almighty, the Ancient of Days, who hast set thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord upon the glorious throne of thy kingdom, exalted far above all peoples, all places, all times, eternally; that He who hath worn our flesh, and borne our manhood into the Holy of Holies, should henceforth pour down heavenly gifts upon His Church, and be both our righteous judge and most merciful intercessor; to whom with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost, one God, be ascribed all might, majesty, dominion, and praise, now and for ever. Amen
