"Hail the day that sees Him rise"

Text From:
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

1. Hail the day that sees Him rise
To His throne above the skies
Christ, awhile to mortals given
Reascends His native heaven

2. There the glorious triumph waits
Lift your heads, eternal gates
Christ hath conquered death and sin
Take the King of glory in

3. Se the Heav’n its Lord receives,
Yet He loves the earth He leaves,
Though returning to His throne,
Still He calls mankind His own

4. See! He lifts His hands above
See! He shows the prints of love
Hark! His gracious lips bestow
Blessings on His church below

5. Still for us He intercedes
His prevailing death He pleads
Near Himself prepares our place
Harbinger of human race

6. There we shall with Thee remain
Partners of Thy endless reign
There Thy face unclouded see
Find our heaven of heavens in Thee

Hymn #6 from _The Lutheran Hymnal_
