Reading 1

In the first book, Theophilus,

I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught

until the day he was taken up,

after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit

to the apostles whom he had chosen.

He presented himself alive to them

by many proofs after he had suffered,

appearing to them during forty days

and speaking about the kingdom of God.

While meeting with them,

he enjoined them not to depart from Jerusalem,

but to wait for “the promise of the Father

about which you have heard me speak;

for John baptized with water,

but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

When they had gathered together they asked him,

“Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”

He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons

that the Father has established by his own authority.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,

and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem,

throughout Judea and Samaria,

and to the ends of the earth.”

When he had said this, as they were looking on,

he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight.

While they were looking intently at the sky as he was going,

suddenly two men dressed in white garments stood beside them.

They said, “Men of Galilee,

why are you standing there looking at the sky?

This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven

will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.”

 

Psalm: 47

Refrain: God mounts His throne to shouts of joy, a blare of trumpets for the Lord!

 

Reading 2

Brothers and sisters:

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,

give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation

resulting in knowledge of him.

May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened,

that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call,

what are the riches of glory

in his inheritance among the holy ones,

and what is the surpassing greatness of his power

for us who believe,

in accord with the exercise of his great might,

which he worked in Christ,

raising him from the dead

and seating him at his right hand in the heavens,

far above every principality, authority, power, and dominion,

and every name that is named

not only in this age but also in the one to come.

And he put all things beneath his feet

and gave him as head over all things to the church,

which is his body,

the fullness of the one who fills all things in every way.

 

Gospel Acclamation: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Gospel

The eleven disciples went to Galilee,

to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.

When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.

Then Jesus approached and said to them,

“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,

baptizing them in the name of the Father,

and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,

teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.

And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”

 

Offertory: We Walk By Faith

We walk by faith, and not by sight;

 No gracious words we hear

 From Him who spoke as none e’er spoke; 

But we believe Him near.

 

We may not touch His hands and side,

 Nor follow where He trod;

 But in His promise we rejoice,

 And cry, “My Lord and God!”

 

Help then, O Lord, our unbelief; 

And may our faith abound

To call on you when you are near 

And seek where you are found:

 

That, when our life  of faith is done,

In realms of clearer light 

We may behold you as you are,

With full and endless sight.

 

Holy, Holy, Holy

Holy, holy, holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of Your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna in the highest!

 

Memorial Acclamation

Save us, Savior of the world, for by Your cross and Resurrection You have set us free.

 

Great Amen

Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen Amen.

 

Lamb of God

Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

 

Communion Hymn: Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!

 

Alleluia! Sing to Jesus! His the scepter, His the throne.

Alleluia! His the triumph, His the victory alone.

Hark! The song of peaceful Zion thunder like a mighty flood:

 “Jesus out of every nation has redeemed us by His blood

 

Alleluia! Not as orphans are we left in sorrow now;

Alleluia! He is near us; Faith believes, nor questions how.

Through the cloud from sight received Him when the forty days were over, 

Shall our hearts forget His promise, “I am with you evermore.”?

 

Alleluia! Bread of Angels, here on earth our food, our stay!

Alleluia! Here the sinful flee to You from day to day.

Intercessor, friend of sinners, Earth’s Redeemer, plead for me

Where the songs of all the sinners sweep across the crystal sea.

Closing Hymn:  Go to the World

 

Go to the world! Go into all the earth.

Go preach the cross where Christ renews life’s worth,

Baptizing as the sign of our rebirth. Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Go to the world! Go into every place. 

Go live the Word of God’s redeeming grace.

Go seek God’s presence in each time and space. Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

 Go to the world! Go as the ones I send,

 For I am with you till the age shall end,

 When all the hosts of glory cry “Amen!” Alleluia! Alleluia!
