O Viri ô Galilæi
O amici chari Dei;
quid statis aspicientes?
In cælum admirantes?
Admiramur ascendentem
nubem Jesum attollentem.
Jam cesset admiratio.
cur? Nam Dei est actio.
O ascensio mirabilis!
O ascensio ineffabilis!
Heu Christe nos intuere,
benedicas miserere.
Fac nos tecum ascendere
culparum misso pondere,
ut cantemus alleluia.
Scandit Christus alleluia.
Ut cantemus alleluia.
