    Verse 1
    See, the Conqueror mounts in triumph,
    See the King in royal state,
    Riding on the clouds, His chariot,
    To His heavenly palace gate;
    Hark! the choirs of Angel voices
    Joyful Alleluias sing,
    And the portals high are lifted
    To receive their Heavenly King.

    Verse 2
    Who is this that comes in glory,
    With the trump of jubilee?
    Lord of battles, GOD of armies,
    He has gained the victory;
    He Who on the Cross did suffer,
    He Who from the grave arose,
    He has vanquished sin and Satan,
    He by death has spoiled His foes.

    Verse 3
    While He lifts His hands in blessing,
    He was parted from His friends;
    While their eager eyes behold Him,
    He upon the clouds ascends;
    He Who walked with God and pleased Him,
    Preaching truth and doom to come,
    He, our Enoch, is translated
    To His everlasting home.

    Verse 4
    Now our heavenly Aaron enters,
    With His blood, within the veil;
    Joshua now is come to Canaan,
    And the kings before Him quail;
    Now He plants the tribes of Israel
    In their promised resting place:
    Now our great Elijah offers
    Double portion of His grace.

    Verse 5
    Thou has raised our human nature
    On the clouds to GOD's right Hand;
    There we sit in Heavenly places,
    There with Thee in glory stand:
    JESUS reigns, adored by Angels;
    MAN with GOD is on the Throne;
    Mighty LORD, in Thine Ascension
    We by faith behold our own.
