For God so loved the world, as to give His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. – Saint John the Apostle

Saint Quote: Saint Bede the Venerable

A hymn of glory let us sing;
New songs throughout the world shall ring:
Christ, by a road before untrod,

Now rises to the throne of God.

The holy apostolic band
Upon the Mount of Olives stand;
And with his followers they see
Their Lord's ascending majesty.

To them the angels drawing nigh,
"Why stand and gaze upon the sky?
This is the Savior," thus they say;

"This is his glorious triumph day. "

Again shall ye behold him so

As ye today have seen him go,

In glorious pomp ascending high,

Up to the portals of the sky."

O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
All praise to thee let earth accord,

Who art, while endless ages run,

With Father and with Spirit one.

                      --Hymn by Saint Bede the Venerable
