Usage Notes:
Sing the response twice at the start and end of the song. Sing only once in between verses.

This psalm is for the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord. If your parish celebrates Ascension on a weekday, then you need to use the responsorial psalm for the 7th Sunday of Easter. However if your parish will celebrate the Ascension on Sunday, use this psalm.
