Hymn of the Day–“A Hymn of Glory Let Us Sing”

“A hymn of gory let us sing!
New hymns throughout the world shall ring:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Christ, by a road before untrod,
Ascends unto the throne of God.
Alleluia alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

The holy apostolic band
Upon the Mount of Olives stand,
Alleluia, alleluia!
And with His faithful foll’wers see
Their Lord ascend in majesty.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

To them the shining angels cry,
‘Why stand and gaze upon the sky?’
Alleluia, alleluia!
‘This is the Savior,’ thus they say;
‘This is His glorious triumph day!’
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

‘You see Him now, ascending high
Up to the portals of the sky.’
Alleluia, alleluia!
‘Hereafter Jesus you shall see
Returning in great majesty.’
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Be now our joy on earth, O Lord,
And be our future great reward.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Then, throned with You forever, we
Shall praise Your name eternally.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

O risen Christ, ascended Lord,
All praise to You let earth accord:
Alleluia, alleluia!
You are, while endless ages run,
With Father and with Spirit one.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!”¬†Lutheran Service Book #493
