451. Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise

1 Hail the day that sees him rise Alleluia!
To his throne above the skies, Alleluia!
Christ, the Lamb for sinners giv'n, Alleluia!
Enters now the highest heav'n! Alleluia!

2 There for him high triumph waits: Alleluia!
Lift your heads, eternal gates, Alleluia!
He has conquered death and sin, Alleluia!
Take the King of glory in. Alleluia!

3 See! the heav'n its Lord receives, Alleluia!
Yet he loves the earth he leaves; Alleluia!
Though returning to his throne, Alleluia!
Still he calls the world his own. Alleluia!

4 See! he lifts his hands above. Alleluia!
See! he shows the wounds of love. Alleluia!
Hark! his gracious lips bestow, Alleluia!
Blessings on his church below. Alleluia!

5 Lord, though parted from our sight Alleluia!
Far beyond the starry height, Alleluia!
Lift our hearts that we may rise Alleluia!
One with you beyond the skies: Alleluia!

6 There with you we shall remain, Alleluia!
Share the glory of your reign, Alleluia!
There your face unclouded view, Alleluia!
Find our heav'n of heav'ns in you. Alleluia!
