219. Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise

1 Hail the day that sees Him rise, Alleluia!
to His throne beyond the skies; Alleluia!
Christ, the Lamb for sinners given, Alleluia!
enters now the highest heaven. 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 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!

4 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!
