A Psalm for Ascension Sunday


Sing songs to God,
sing praise to his name:
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!

Let those made right with God be glad,
Let them rejoice before their Lord:
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!

His name is the Great I AM,
Let us rejoice before him:
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!


Father to the fatherless, defender of widows,
is God whose home is on high:
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!

He creates homes for the homeless
And places the lonely in a loving family:
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!

He leads prisoners to freedom, singing for joy;
but leaves rebels to rot in the heat of the sun:
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!

Sing to God, all you nations of the earth,
sing praise to the Great I AM,
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!

Proclaim the power of God,
who thunders with mighty voice.
Lift up a song to the one who rides upon the clouds!
Praise be to God!
Amen


Adapted from Psalms 68:3-6, 32-35
