Ascension Song.

‘He ascended up on high.’  EPH. 4:8.

GOLDEN harps are sounding,
     Angel voices ring,
Pearly gates are opened–
     Opened for the King;
Christ, the King of Glory,
     Jesus, King of Love,
Is gone up in triumph
     To His throne above.
          All His work is ended,
               Joyfully we sing,
          Jesus hath ascended!
               Glory to our King!

He who came to save us,
     He who bled and died,
Now is crowned with glory
     At His Father’s side.
Never more to suffer,
     Never more to die
Jesus, King of Glory,
     Is gone up on high.
          All His work is ended,
               Joyfully we sing,
          Jesus hath ascended!
               Glory to our King!

Praying for His children,
     In that blessed place,
Calling them to glory,
     Sending them His grace;
His bright home preparing,
     Faithful ones, for you;
Jesus ever liveth,
     Ever loveth too.
          All His work is ended,
               Joyfully we sing,
          Jesus hath ascended!
               Glory to our King!

This post is dedicated to the memory of Dorothy Rowena Steinbach, beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother in my sister’s family. . .we loved you Rowena, and Jesus loves you, too.  He gave you the gift of song and you used it for His glory all the days of your life, 83 years.  Praise the LORD for your homegoing!
