Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

471. Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise

1 Hail the day that sees him rise Alleluia!
To his throne beyond the skies; Alleluia!
Christ, while to mortals given, 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!

5 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!

6 There we shall with him remain, Alleluia!
Partners of his endless reign; Alleluia!
There his face unclouded see, Alleluia!
Live with him eternally. Alleluia!
