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.
