Thou hast ascended in glory...

Thou hast ascended in glory, O Christ our God, bringing joy to Thy disciples, for Thou didst reassure them through Thy blessing of the promise of the Holy Spirit. For Thou art the Son of God, the redeemer of the world.

When Thou didst fulfill Thy dispensation for our sakes, and united the things on earth with the things in heaven, Thou didst ascend in glory, O Christ our God, in no way divided, but remaining inseparable, and crying to those that love Thee ‘I am with you and no one shall be against you.
