STICHERA OF THE ASCENSION

ὁ κύριος ἀνελήφθη εἰς οὐρανοὺς

Pentecostarion, p. 147

tr., John Brownlie

8.7.8.7

I

Now the Lord from earth ascending,

Seeks the throne of heaven again,

That the Comforter, descending,

Might abide with sinful men.

II

Clouds His chariots, upwards rising

Bear Him proudly to the skies;

Heaven beholds a sight surprising,

Man above the angels rise.

III

Lift your gates ye powers supernal;

All ye nations come adore;

For the Christ to realms eternal,

Goes to dwell forevermore.
