You will go with my love to the ends of the earth,
Modern martyrs of mercy from the East to West sent forth.
I'll work with you and through you in wonders and signs.
With the power of the Spirit, you'll do greater things than I.
I'm with you always, till the end of time.
Though I'm taken into heaven,
I'll return in bread and wine.
I am going away and I will come back to you.
Not in ways of the world do I give myself to you.
You'll still touch me and see though a cloud lifts my body.
Peace I leave with you; I give you my peace.
Why are you standing there looking at the sky?
Go now in peace to love and serve the Lord!
