Park, Owain: Coelos ascendit hodie

Coelos ascendit hodie (2017)

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, laudetur Sancta Trinitas, Deo dicamus
gratias. Alleluia! Amen.

Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, has ascended today into the heavens.
He sits at the right hand of the Father, ruling heaven and earth.
Now are fulfilled all the psalms of our forefather David.
The Lord sits with his Lord, upon the royal throne of God
in this his greatest triumph.
Let us bless the Lord; let the Holy Trinity be praised; let us give
thanks unto God. Alleluia! Amen.
