Christ My Song - 862

All hail! O glorious Son of God - Risen and ascended
(Frances Bevan/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Risen and ascended.

"While he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into Heaven.” (Luke 24,51)

1. All hail! O glorious Son of God,
  in triumph risen again –
all heaven resounds with joyful laud
  the songs of ransomed men;
    the mighty chains of death are riven,
    the Risen Christ is throned in Heaven. (PDF - Midi)

2. Before thee all the shining hosts,
  the mighty Angels bend;
thy saved ones from a thousand coasts
  their psalms of victory blend –
    I join that song so passing sweet,
    I cast my crown before thy Feet.

3. O joy! the second Adam stands
  within God's Paradise –
no longer barred by flaming brands
  the shining pathway lies –
    within, the glorious Head has passed;
    each member must be there at last.

4. Behind us lie the cross and grave,
  before, eternal bliss;
there blossoms from the garden cave
  the Tree of Righteousness,
    the Face that shame and spitting bore
    is crowned with radiance evermore.

5. With Mary, O my Lord, I bow
  in rapture at thy Feet;
in spirit humbly kiss them now
  and soon in presence sweet;
    my name upon thy lips divine
    the lips that tell me “Thou art mine.”

6. Thou livest far from earthly strife
  in God's eternal peace –
and there with thee is hid my life,
  and there my wanderings cease;
    the secret place where still and blessed
    I rest in thine eternal rest.

G. Ter Steegen.
