176 ~ Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise



1

Hail the day that sees Him rise,
Alleluia!
Glorious to His native skies;
Alleluia!
Christ, awhile to mortals giv'n,
Alleluia!
Enters now the highest heav'n!
Alleluia!


2

There the glorious triumph waits;
Alleluia!
Lift your heads, eternal gates!
Alleluia!
Wide unfold the radiant scene;
Alleluia!
Take the King of glory in!
Alleluia!


3

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!


4

Lord beyond our mortal sight,
Alleluia!
Raise our hearts to reach Thy height,
Alleluia!
There Thy face unclouded see,
Alleluia!
Find our heav'n of heav'ns in Thee.
Alleluia!
