    Verse 1
    Thou art gone up on high,
    To mansions in the skies;
    And round Thy Throne unceasingly
    The songs of praise arise:
    But we are lingering here,
    With sin and care oppressed;
    Lord, send Thy promised Comforter,
    And lead us to our rest

    Verse 2
    Thou art gone up on high
    But, Thou didst first come down,
    Through earth's most bitter misery
    To pass to pass unto Thy Crown;
    And girt with griefs and fears
    Our onward course must be;
    But only let this path of tears
    Lead us at last to Thee

    Verse 3
    Thou art gone up on high;
    But Thou shalt come again,
    With all the bright ones of the sky
    Attendant in Thy train.
    Lord, by Thy saving power
    So make us live and die,
    That we may stand in that dread hour
    At Thy right Hand on high
