446. Lift up your hearts, believers!

1 Lift up your hearts, believers!
This is the holy day
when Jesus, our Redeemer,
completes salvation's way.
The forty days are over,
and clouds shine high and bright
as Christ, the overcomer,
is lifted from our sight.

2 Lift up your hearts, believers!
Ye gates, lift up your heads!
Though minds be full of wonder,
though souls be filled with dread.
The Spirit has been promised,
and, though we are alone,
we wait until the moment
when fire and wind are known.

3 Lift up your hearts believers!
And do not be downcast,
for Jesus, our Redeemer,
receives the crown at last.
The thorns of crucifixion
are changed to stars of light,
and Christ, the Lord of glory,
is named as God's delight.

4 Lift up your hearts, believers!
This is the holy day
when Jesus, our Redeemer,
completes salvation's way.
