Hymn/Song Information

Lo God to Heaven ascendeth Throughout




Lo, God to Heav’n ascendeth!
Throughout its regions vast
With shouts triumphant blendeth
the trumpet’s thrilling blast:
Sing praise to Christ the Lord;
sing praise with exultation,
King of each heathen nation,
the God of hosts adored!


With joy is Heav’n resounding
Christ’s glad return to see;
Behold the saints surrounding
the Lord Who set them free.
Bright myriads, thronging, come;
the cherub band rejoices,
And loud seraphic voices
all welcome Jesus home.


From cross to throne ascending,
we follow Christ on high
And know the pathway wending
to mansions in the sky.
Our Lord is gone before;
yet here He will not leave us,
And soon in Heav’n receive us
and open wide the door.


Our place He is preparing;
to Heav’n we, too, shall rise,
With Him His glory sharing,
be where our Treasure lies.
Bestir thyself, my soul!
Where Jesus Christ has entered,
There let Thy hope be centered;
press onward toward the goal.


Let all our thoughts be winging
to where Thou didst ascend,
And let our hearts be singing:
“We seek Thee, Christ, our Friend,
Thee, God’s exalted Son,
our Life, and Way to heaven,
To Whom all power is given,
our Joy and Hope and Crown.”


Farewell with all thy treasures,
O world to falsehood given!
Thy dross gives no true pleasures;
We seek the joys of heaven.
The Savior is our Prize;
He comforts us in sadness
And fills our hearts with gladness;
To Him we lift our eyes.


When on our vision dawning,
Will break the wished-for hour
Of that all-glorious morning
When Christ shall come with power?
Oh, come, thou welcome day,
When we, our Savior meeting,
His second advent greeting,
Shall hail the Heaven-sent ray.
