Ascension of Jesus Prayer

Ascension of Jesus Prayer

Oh, what an amazing blessing
it must have been 
for the disciples and Mary Magdalene
to walk with Jesus once again.
Rejoice in his Resurrection.

But, oh, what sadness must have followed
when Jesus’ work on earth was done.
Despite the glory of his Ascension into heaven,
was Mary again to lose her son?

With open hearts, full of faith,
they were nurtured by his promise.
The words of Jesus about the Holy Spirit
kept them strong and brought them calmness.
