Lyrics:Christopher Wordsworth
Music:Arthur S. Sullivan

This hymn has a unique tune.


See the Conqu'ror mount in triumph,

See the King in royal state

Riding on the clouds His chariot

To His;heav'nly palace gate;

Hark! The choirs of angel voices

Joyful hallelujahs sing,

And the portals high are lifted

To receive, to receive, to receive their

heav'nly King.


Who is this that comes in glory,

With the trump of jubilee?

Lord of battles, God of armies,

He has gained the victory;

He who on the cross did suffer,

He who from the grave arose,

He has vanquished sin and Satan,

He by death, He by death, He by

death has spoiled His foes.


While He lifts His hands in blessing

He is parted from His friends;

While their eager eyes behold Him,

He upon the clouds ascends;

He who walked with God and pleased Him,

Preaching truth and doom to come,

He, our Enoch, is translated

To His home, to His home, to His everlasting



Now our heavenly Aaron enters,

With His blood, within the veil;

Joshua now is come to Canaan,

And the kings before Him quail;

Now He plants the tribes of Israel

In their promised resting-place;

Now our great Elijah offers

Of His grace, of His grace,

double portion of His grace.


He has raised our human nature

On the clouds to God's right hand;

There we sit in heav'nly places,

There with Him in glory stand. Jesus reigns,

adored by angels;

Man with God is on the throne;

Mighty Lord, in Thine ascension

We by faith, we by faith, we by

faith behold our own.
