Ascendo ad patrem meum et patrem vestrum, alleluia.
Deum meum et Deum vestrum, alleluia.
Et dum assumptus fuero a vobis mittam vobis Spiritum veritatis
et gaudebit cor vestrum, alleluia.

Ego rogabo Patrem et alium Paracletum dabit vobis
Spiritum veritatis et gaudebit cor vestrum, alleluia.

I ascend unto my Father and your Father, alleluia.
To my God and your God, alleluia.
And when I am taken up I will send to you
the Spirit of truth, and your heart will rejoice, alleluia.

I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Paraclete,
the Spirit of truth, and your heart will rejoice, alleluia.
