Hymn/Song Information

Redemption’s holy work was done The




Redemption’s holy work was done;
The Saviour back from earth returned;
The Father hailed his conquering Son,
And gave the crown he well had earned:
“Ascend” he cried “and share my throne,”
“Ascend and make all hearts thy own.”


“Ascend and fill thy native seat,
Eternal Prophet, Priest and King;
While foes lie prostrate at thy feet,
And friends their free-will offerings bring,
And converts at thy word are born,
As plenteous as the dews of morn.”


Messiah hears, ascends his throne,
Begins his mediatorial reign;
He claims the nations for his own,
He calls the world to God again;
And pleads with him his promise past,
That men shall be restored at last,


For this he sojourned long below,
A pilgrim in a world of sin,
And drained himself the cup of woe,
A better lot for man to win;
Upon his cross, upon his throne,
He died, he lives, for man alone.
