Psalm 100:1-5 [German]

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Jauchzet dem Herrn alle Welt (1844), composed by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847)

Ascendo ad Patrem [I ascend to my Father] (John 20:17; 15:26; 16:22; 14:16) – Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Jesus represented as telling Mary not to touch him, by Hans Holbein the Younger.

John 20:17; 15:26; 16:22; 14:16 [Latin]

17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

John 20:13-15 [Latin]

13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
