The Assumption

Psalm text (Ps 45:10, 11, 12, 16)

The queen stands at your right hand arrayed in gold.

The queen takes her place at your right hand
in gold of Ophir.

Hear, O daughter, and see; turn your ear,
forget your people and your father's house.

So shall the king desire your beauty;
for he is your lord.

They are borne in with gladness and joy;
they enter the palace of the king.

Gospel Verse

Mary is taken up to heaven, and the angels of God shout for joy.
