HIS ASCENSION
193
2  Alleluia! not as orphans,
Are we left in sorrow now; Alleluia! He is near us,
Faith believes, nor questions how: Though the cloud from sight received Him,
When the forty days were o'er, Shall our hearts forget His promise,
" I am with you evermore "?
3  Alleluia! Bread of angels,
Thou on earth our food, our stay; Alleluia! here the sinful
Flee to Thee from day to day;
Intercessor, Friend of sinners,
Earth's Redeemer, plead for me, ,
Where the songs of all the sinless Sweep across the crystal sea.
4 Alleluia! sing to Jesus!
His the scepter, His the throne; Alleluia! His the triumph,
His the victory alone: Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion
Thunder like a mighty flood; Jesus, out of every nation, Hath redeemed us by His blood.
William C. Dix, 1866
