Viri Galilaei, quid admiramini aspicientes in caelum? Alleluia.
Quemadmodum vidistis eum ascendentem in caelum, ita veniet, Alleluia.

jubilate Deo in voce exultationis.

Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking into heaven? Alleluia.
He shall so come as you have seen him going into heaven. Alleluia.

make jubilation to God in the voice of exultation.
