Coelos Ascendit Hodie - Stanford


Coelos ascendit hodie

Jesus Christus Rex Gloriae:

Sedet ad Patris dexteram,

Gubernat coelum et terram.

Iam finem habent omnia

Patris Davidis carmina.

Iam Dominus cum Domino

Sedet in Dei solio:

In hoc triumpho maximo

Benedicamus Domino.

Laudatur Sancta Trinitas,

Deo dicamus gratias,

Alleluia. Amen.


Today into the heavens has ascended

Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, Alleluia!

He sits at the Father's right hand,

and rules heaven and earth, Alleluia!

Now have been fulfilled all of

Father David's songs,

Now God is with God, Alleluia!

He sits upon the royal throne of God,

in this his greatest triumph, Alleluia!

Let us bless the Lord:

Let the Holy Trinity be praised,

let us give thanks to the Lord,

Alleluia! Amen.
