Representative Text

1 Sing, O heavens! O earth rejoice!
Angel harp and human voice,
Round Him as He rises, raise
Your ascending Saviour’s praise.

2 Refrain
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Alleluia, Alleluia.

3 Bruised is the serpent’s head,
Hell is vanquished, Death is dead,
And to Christ gone up on high,
Captive is captivity.

4 All His work and warfare done,
He into His heaven is gone,
And beside His Father’s throne,
Now is pleading for His own.

5 Asking gifts for sinful men,
That He may come down again.
And, the fallen to restore,
In them dwell for evermore.

6 Sing, O Heavens! O earth, rejoice!
Angel harp, and human voice,
Round Him, in His glory, raise
Your ascending Saviour’s praise.
