37A – Ascension Day

36A - Easter 6A38A - Easter 7A
 

Psalm 47 (A paraphrase)
Everyone, clap your hands,
shout loud, joyful, praise to God;
holy, mysterious,
endlessly loving,
sovereign of all that is.

The trumpet sounds,
song and psalm rise,
praising the holy one,
sovereign of all that is.

Earth and air and cosmos,
nations, powerful rulers and the least
belong to God,

the LORD, the holy one,
sovereign of all that is.
