Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Jesus, our Lord, to heaven is gone

Jesus, our Lord, to heaven is gone

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesus our Lord to heav'n is gone,
And sits at God's right hand!
Where angels, him their sovereign own,
And are at his command.

2 Lo he ascends with pow'r and might,
To heav'n from whence he came--
And there he reigns in glorious light,
And angels praise his name.

3 For that he once himself abas'd,
And died to set us free;
He is by all in heaven prais'd,
And will for ever be.

4 Once more on earth he is to come,
To judge the human race
And take his ransom'd people home,
To know his pow'r and grace.
