Psalms 27.11; 16.12; Acts 1.11; Psalm 68.18

Leave us not, neither forsake us, O God of our salvation.
In thy presence is the fullness of joy.

Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,
shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Thou art gone up on high, hallelujah;
Thou hast led captivity captive, hallelujah;
And received gifts for men, hallelujah;
Yea, even for thine enemies, that the Lord God might dwell among them.
Hallelujah, amen.
