Hail the day that sees Him rise,
Glorious to His native skies:
Christ, awhile to mortals giv'n,
Enters now the highest heav'n.

There the glorious triumph waits;
Lift your heads, eternal gates!
Wide unfold the radiant scene;
Take the King of glory in.

See, the heav’n its Lord receives,
Yet He loves the earth He leaves:
Though returning to His throne,
Still He calls mankind His own.

Still for us He intercedes,
His prevailing death He pleads;
Near himself prepares our place
Great forerunner of our race.
