VERSE 1:
Hail the day that sees him rise, Alleluia!
to his throne above the skies; Alleluia!
Christ, the Lamb for sinners giv'n, Alleluia!
enters now the highest heav'n! Alleluia!

VERSE 2:
There for him high triumph waits; Alleluia!
lift your heads, eternal gates! Alleluia!
he has conquered death and sin; Alleluia!
take the King of glory in! Alleluia!

VERSE 3:
See! the heav'n its Lord receives, Alleluia!
yet he loves the earth he leaves; Alleluia!
though returning to his throne, Alleluia!
still he calls the world his own. Alleluia!

VERSE 4:
See! he lifts his hands above; Alleluia!
See! he shows the prints of love: Alleluia!
Hark! his gracious lips bestow, Alleluia!
blessings on his Church below. Alleluia!
