Fire Salmer (Four Psalms) (Op. 74 )

Jesus Kristus er opfaren

Jesus Kristus er opfaren
Over alle Engelskare.
Himlen indgangen
Og tog så Fængslet fangen,
Kyrie eleison!
Nu vi prise din Himmelgang
Med idel Englefyrd og Sang
Din Lov vi sjunge
Med Hjerte, Mund og Tunge.
Kyrie eleison!

Jesus Christ our Lord is risen

Jesus Christ our Lord is risen
Above flocks of angels,
entered Heaven,
And so took this worldly prison captive.
Kyrie eleison!
Now we praise your ascension
with divine joy and song.
We sing your praise
with heart, mind and tongue.
Kyrie eleison!
