1.  Thou hast gone up again,

Thou who didst first come down;

Thou hast gone up to reign,

Gone up from cross to crown.

Beyond the opening sky

No more thy face we see;

Yet draw our souls on high,

That we may dwell with thee.

2.  Up to those regions blest

Where faith has fullest sway,

Up to thine endless rest,

Up to thy cloudless day;

Up, up to where thou art,

Fount of unwasting love,

Up to thy mighty heart,

All its greatn power to prove.

3.  Not now for distant heaven

Or future life we pray:

Lord, let thy grace be given

To make us thine to-day.

Here hold us in thy hand,

Here by thy Spirit guide,

So shall our hearts ascend,

And still with thee abide.
