Hail the day that saw him rise Ravished




Hail, the day that saw him rise,
Ravish'd from our wishful eyes;
Christ, awhile to mortals giv'n,
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!"


Him tho' highest heaven receives,
Still he loves the earth he leaves;
Tho' returning to his throne,
Still he calls mankind his own:
Still for us he intercedes,
Prevalent his death he pleads; ^
Next himself prepares a place,
Harbinger of human race.


Master, (may we ever say,)
Taken from the world away.
See thy faithful servants, see.
Ever gazing up to thee:
Grant, though parted from our sight,
High above yon azure height,
Grant our souls 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
Looking for a happier home:
There we shall with thee remain,
Partners of thy endless reign;
There thy face unclouded see
Find a heav'n of heav'ns in thee.
