THE RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION OF CHRIST




The Lord is risen from the dead:
Ris’n to the majesty on high:
The powers of hell are captive led,
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


Lo! his triumphal chariot waits,
And angels chant the raptured lay;
“Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates,
Ye everlasting doors, give way.”


“Loose all your bars of massy light,
And wide unfold the’ ethereal scene;
He claims these mansions as his right:
Receive the King of glory in.”


Who is the King of glory? Who?
“The Lord of hosts, in battle strong;
Who Satan, sin, and death o’erthrew,
And leads in chains the captive throng.”


“Behold! the King of Glory waits;
Celestial powers his voice obey:
Lift up your heads, ye heavenly gates,
Ye everlasting doors, give way.”


Who is the King of glory? Who?
“The Lord, of power supreme possest:
To Him eternal praise is due;
God over all, for ever blest.”
