#219 Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise

Hail the day that sees him rise, Alleluia! To his throne above the skies, Alleluia!

Christ, the Lamb or sinners given, Alleluia! Enters now the highest heaven. Alleluia!

 

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!

 

See, the heaven 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!

 

See, He lifts His hands above! Alleluia! See, He shows the prints of love! Alleluia!

Hark! His gracious lips bestow, Alleluia! Blessings on His church below. Alleluia!
