331. Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise

1 Hail the day that sees him rise, Alleluia!
to his throne beyond the skies, Alleluia!
Christ, awhile to mortals giv'n, Alleluia!
enters now his native heav'n, Alleluia!

2 See, he lifts his hand above! Alleluia!
See, he shows the prints of love! Alleluia!
Hark, his gracious lips bestow, Alleluia!
blessing on his church below, Alleluia!

3 Still for us he intercedes, Alleluia!
His prevailing death he pleads, Alleluia!
near himself prepares our place, Alleluia!
he the firstfruits of our race, Alleluia!

4 Master (we will ever say), Alleluia!
taken from our sight today, Alleluia!
see thy faithful servants, see, Alleluia!
ever gazing up to thee, Alleluia!

5 Grant, though parted from our sight, Alleluia!
high above yon azure height...Alleluia!
grant our hearts may thither rise, Alleluia!
following thee beyond the skies. Alleluia!

6 There we shall with thee remain, Alleluia!
partners of thy endless reign; Alleluia!
there thy face unclouded see, Alleluia!
find our heaven of heavens in thee. Alleluia!
