Verse 1
O Christ, Thou hast ascended,
Triumphantly on high,
By cherub guards attended
And armies of the sky:
Let earth tell forth the story,
Our very flesh and bone,
Emmanuel, in glory,
Ascends His FATHER's Throne.

Verse 2
There, there Thou standest pleading
The virtue of Thy Blood,
For sinners interceding,
Our Advocate with GOD;
And every changeful fashion
Of our brief joys and cares,
Finds thought in Thy compassion
And echo in Thy prayers.

Verse 3
Oh, for the priceless merit
Of Thy redeeming Cross,
Vouchsafe Thy Sevenfold SPIRIT,
And turn to gain our loss;
Till we, by strong endeavour,
In heart and mind ascend,
And dwell with Thee for ever
In glories without end.
