Ascension of the Lord

Ascension Exapostilarion
James Michael Thompson
O Christ, you were raised up to heaven in the sight of your disciples
You again were up to share in your Father's throne.
The angels who came to greet you at the heavenly gate cried out:
"Open your gates and lift up your lintels, so the King of Glory may come in,
for our King comes again to the Source of Light"
