Hymn Selection

216

L.M.


1
LORD, we rejoice that Thou art gone
To sit upon Thy Father's throne;
Thy path of shame and suff'ring o'er,
Thy heart shall grieve and mourn no more.
2
With joy our wond'ring hearts retrace
Thy ways on earth of power and grace;
We sit as learners at Thy feet,
Thy words than honey far more sweet.
3
We gaze with wonder at Thy cross,
With all its suff'ring, shame and loss,
Where Thou for us was crucified,
And, for our sins, a victim died.
4
We love to look within the tomb,
Robbed by Thy death of all its gloom;
The stone for ever rolled away:
Thy death the power of death did slay.
5
We joy to see Thee, Lord, arise
Triumphant through the opening skies,
And hear all heav'n united own
Thee worth to ascend the throne.
6
Lord, now we wait for Thee to come,
And take us to Thy Father's home;
What everlasting joy 'twill be
To live eternally with Thee!
