Hymn Two: For Ascension

Christ’s ascended! He’s not here!
He’s gone back to His Father.
Since He’s gone we’ve nought to fear,
For we shall follow after.
If Jesus’ death was seen to be
By God the just satisfactory,
Then we can be quite confident,
That we shall follow where he went!
Then we can be quite confident,
That we shall follow where he went!

Christ’s ascended! He’s not here!
But He’s sent us something better.
Now He’s gone God’s twice as near,
And He’s made us twice a debtor.
His Holy Spirit dwells within
And gives us victory over sin.
He lets us know that He is Lord,
He is our comforter and sword!
He lets us know that He is Lord,
He is our comforter and sword!

Christ’s ascended! He’s not here!
But he hasn’t ceased to love us.
As below he had the Father’s ear,
Now in Heav’n He prays above us.
Even though He reigns ascended,
His servanthood has not yet ended.
He has for us prepared a feast,
And prays for us as our high priest!
He has for us prepared a feast,
And prays for us as our high priest!

Christ’s ascended! He’s not here!
He’ll come back, the angel told us.
Till He returns we’ll persevere,
For in His hand He holds us.
He’ll come back just as he went,
From the clouds in marvellous descent.
He’ll come back to claim his own,
And rule the world on David’s throne!
He’ll come back to claim his own,
And rule the world on David’s throne!
