The introit for the Feast of the Ascension has been a favorite of several priests I have known. I rather like it myself.
Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? alleluia: in like manner as ye have seen him going up into heaven, so shall he come again, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. Psalm 47. O clap your hands together, all ye people: O sing unto God with the voice of melody.
Here it is in Latin.
