46. Most glorious Lord, you have gone up

1 Most glorious Lord, you have gone up
to take your place on high;
as victor, you in triumph led
captive captivity.

2 Blest be the Lord who carries us
and keeps us day by day;
in God and God alone we find
salvation's surest way.

3 God is the God who freely gives
his people life and breath;
God saves and shelters, rescues us
from danger and from death.
