Hail the day that sees Him rise Alleluia




Hail the day that sees Him rise,
Alleluia!
To His throne above the skies,
Alleluia!
Christ, awhile to mortals given,
Alleluia!
Reascends His native heaven,
Alleluia!


There the glorious triumph waits,
Alleluia!
Lift your heads, eternal gates,
Alleluia!
Christ hath conquered death and sin,
Alleluia!
Take the King of glory in,
Alleluia!


Circled round with angel powers,
Alleluia!
Their triumphant Lord, and ours,
Alleluia!
Conqueror over death and sin,
Alleluia!
“Take the King of glory in!
Alleluia!”


Him though highest heav’n receives,
Alleluia!
Still He loves the earth He leaves,
Alleluia!
Though returning to His throne,
Alleluia!
Still He calls mankind His own,
Alleluia!


See! He lifts His hands above,
Alleluia!
See! He shows the prints of love,
Alleluia!
Hark! His gracious lips bestow,
Alleluia!
Blessings on His church below,
Alleluia!


Still for us His death He pleads,
Alleluia!
Prevalent He intercedes,
Alleluia!
Near Himself prepares our place,
Alleluia!
Harbinger of human race,
Alleluia!


Master, (will we ever say),
Alleluia!
Taken from our head to day,
Alleluia!
See Thy faithful servants, see,
Alleluia!
Ever gazing up to Thee,
Alleluia!


Grant, though parted from our sight,
Alleluia!
Far above yon azure height,
Alleluia!
Grant our hearts may thither rise,
Alleluia!
Seeking Thee beyond the skies,
Alleluia!


Ever upward let us move,
Alleluia!
Wafted on the wings of love,
Alleluia!
Looking when our Lord shall come,
Alleluia!
Longing, gasping after home,
Alleluia!


There we shall with Thee remain,
Alleluia!
Partners of Thy endless reign,
Alleluia!
There Thy face unclouded see,
Alleluia!
Find our heaven of heavens in Thee,
Alleluia!


Master, parted from our sight,
Alleluia!
High above yon azure height,
Alleluia!
Grant our hearts may thither rise,
Alleluia!
Following Thee beyond the skies.
Alleluia!

Yet He loves the earth He leaves,

Lift your heads, eternal gates,

Alleluia!
Take the King of glory in,
Alleluia!
