V. The holy Mother of God has been raised up.
R. Beyond the choirs of Angels to the heavenly kingdom.
Wither do you go, O Virgin most prudent, like the morning rising. You are all comely and beautiful, daughter of Sion, fair as the moon, bright as the sun.
Let us pray.
Almighty and everlasting God, you received the immaculate Virgin Mary, the Mother of your Son, body and soul into the glory of heaven; grant that, with our gaze ever fixed on heavenly things, we may be counted worthy of a share in her eternal glory. Through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
