Hail the day that sees him rise Ravished from our




Hail the day that sees him rise,
Ravished from our wishful eyes!
Christ, awhile to mortals given,
|: Reascends his native heaven. :|


There the pompous triumph waits:
"Lift your heads, eternal gates;
Wide unfold the radiant scene;
|: Take the King of glory in!" :|


Circled round with angel-powers,
Their triumphant Lord, and ours,
Conqueror over death and sin;
|: "Take the King of glory in!" :|


Him though highest heaven receives,
Still he loves the earth he leaves;
Though returning to his throne,
|: Still he calls mankind his own. :|


See, he lifts his hands above!
See, he shows the prints of love!
Hark, his gracious lips bestow
|: Blessings on his church below! :|


Still for us his death he pleads;
Prevalent he intercedes;
Near himself prepares our place,
|: Harbinger of human race. :|


Master, (will we ever say)
Taken from our head to day;
See thy faithful servants, see,
|: Ever gazing up to thee. :|


Grant, though parted from our sight,
High above yon azure height,
Grant our hearts may thither rise,
|: Following thee beyond the skies. :|


Ever upward let us move,
Wafted on the wings of love;
Looking when our Lord shall come,
|: Longing, gasping after home. :|


There we shall with thee remain,
Partners of thy endless reign;
There thy face unclouded see,
|: Find our heaven of heavens in thee. :|
