Christ Ascended.                        69
VI.
CHRIST ASCENDED.
u And ascended into Heaven j and sitteth on the right
hand of the Father"
LXV.
Thou art gone up on high
To mansions in the skies, And round Thy throne unceasingly
The songs of praise arise. But we are lingering here
With sin and care oppress'd ; Lord ! send Thy promised Comforter^
And lead us to Thy rest!
Thou art gone up on high :
But Thou didst first come down, Through earth's most bitter agony
To pass unto Thy crown: And girt with griefs and fears
Our onward course must be ; But only let that path of tears
Lead us, at last, to Thee !
Thou art gone up on high :
But Thou shalt come again With all the bright ones of the sky
Attendant in Thy train. Oh ! by Thy saving power
So make us live and die, That we may stand, in that dread hour,
At Thy right hand on high !
Emma Toke. 1851.
