A Quote by Bede the Venerable on angels, art, christ, day, earth, fatherhood, glory, god, praise, songs, spirit, and world

A hymn of glory let us sing; New songs throughout the world shall ring: Christ, by a road before untrod, Now rises to the throne of God. The holy apostolic band Upon the Mount of Olives stand; And with his followers they see Their Lord's ascending majesty. To them the angels drawing nigh, "Why stand and gaze upon the sky? This is the Savior," thus they say; "This is his glorious triumph day. "Again shall ye behold him so As ye today have seen him go, In glorious pomp ascending high, Up to the portals of the sky." O risen Christ, ascended Lord, All praise to thee let earth accord, Who art, while endless ages run, With Father and with Spirit one.

Bede the Venerable (673 - 735)
