Original text and translations
O risen Lord! O Christ ascended!
O Prince of Peace! Thy toils are ended,
and Thou art on Thine everlasting throne ador'd.
O hear our songs, O hear our pray'rs and praises,
O grant us peace.
Thy pilgrim church still raises
Her ardent gaze to Thee,
As for Thy rest she longs.
Thou, Jesu King, to heav'n ascending,
With gifts of peace Thy pierced hands extending,
shed'st worlds of hope and joy.
O risen Lord! O Prince of Peace,
To Thee we sing Alleluia. Amen.
