In honor of today’s feast of the Ascension….
All peoples shall come to you, O God,
Save all who call upon your name,
Choirs of angels your majesty applaud,
Enjoying peace and love eternally.
Now we small humans may enjoy the same,
Setting us and every captive free
In Christ, both victim and high priest,
Our savior and love, who takes away all shame:
Nearness to you makes greatness from the least.
