371. Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise

1 Hail the day that sees him rise, alleluia!
To his throne above the skies! Alleluia!
Christ, the Lamb for sinners giv'n, alleluia!
Reascends his native heav'n! 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 Highest heav'n 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!
