 THE CROSS AND THE CROWN.

‘Ave, Scala peccatorum,

Qua ascendit rex cœlorum,

Ut ad choros Angelorum

Homo sic ascenderet;

In te vitam reparavit

Auctor vitæ, proles David,

Et sic se humiliavit.

Ut mundum redimeret.

Ap. Daniel, Thes. Hymnol. vol. v. p. 183.

‘The blessing from the cloud that showers,

In wondrous twofold birth

Of heaven is and earth -

He is both yours, ye hosts, and ours:

Hosannah, David’s Son,

For victory is won!

He left us with a blessing here,

And took it to the sky;

The blessing from on high

Bespeaks to us His Presence near:

Hosannah, David’s Son,

For victory is won!’

(From an Ascension Hymn). - A. E.
