Full Text

1 A hymn of glory let us sing!
New hymns throughout the world shall ring;
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ, by a road before untrod,
Ascends unto the throne of God.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

2 The holy apostolic band
Upon the Mount of Olives stand,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
And with his faithful followers see
Their Lord ascend in majesty.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

3 To whom the shining angels cry,
"Why stand and gaze upon the sky?"
Alleluia! Alleluia!
"This is the Savior!" Thus they say,
"This is his glorious triumph day!"
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

4 O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
All praise to you let earth accord:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
You are, whole endless ages run,
With Father and with Spirit one.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
in Triune Godhead ever One.
