Christ High-Ascended


Christ high-ascended, now in glory seated,
Throned and exalted, victory completed,
Death’s dread dominion finally defeated,
We are His witnesses.

Christ from the Father ev’ry pow’r possessing,
Who on His chosen lifted hands in blessing,
Sends forth His servants, still in faith confessing,
We are His witnesses.

Christ, who in dying won for us salvation,
Lives now the firstborn of the new creation;
To win disciples out of ev’ry nation,
We are His witnesses.

Christ in His splendor, all dominion gaining,
Christ with His people evermore remaining,
Christ to all ages gloriously reigning,
We are His witnesses.

As at His parting, joy shall banish grieving,
Faith in His presence strengthen our believing;
Filled with His Spirit, love and pow’r receiving,
We are His witnesses.
