Full Text

1 Forty days on earth He spent
Since glad Easter day,
Then from His Apostles' sight
Jesus pass'd away;
Evermore th' Incarnate Son
Sits on God the Father's Throne.

2 "Lift your heads, Eternal gates,"
So the Angels sing;
"Everlasting doors, make way
For the Glorious King!"
Satan's power is overthrown,
Christ the Victor reigns alone!

3 With the Angels we, O Lord,
Songs of triumph raise;
With the twelve, at Bethany,
Up to Heaven we gaze;
Soon Thou wilt return--may be
Watch with joy to welcome Thee!

Amen.
