131 - Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
Hail the day that sees Him rise,
And ascend His native skies,
Christ, awhile to mortals given,
Enters now the gates of heaven.

2
There the glorious triumph waits,
Lift your heads, eternal gates,
Christ hath vanquished death and sin;
Take the King of glory in,

3
See, the heaven its Lord receives!
Yet He loves the earth He leaves;
Though returning to His throne,
Still He calls mankind His own.

4
See, He lifts His hands above!
See, He shows the prints of love!
Hark! His gracious lips bestow,
Blessings on His church below.

5
Saviour, parted from our sight,
High above yon azure height,
Grant our hearts may thither rise,
Following Thee beyond the skies.
